Red Heads Studio Yard Dog Red 2015

Red Heads Studio Yard Dog Red 750ml 2015   
Sku: 47597

"Yard Dog" is an unusual $10 blend from Australia, combining 46% Petit Verdot, 30% Merlot and 24% Cabernet Sauvignon. This mutt gave me a look and then followed me home. Not appearing to be a contest winner based on external appearances, I must say that back at the ranch we were all rewarded with its unexpected inner beauty. The Red Heads who produced this wine appear to be a bit scrappy themselves but obviously know what they like and how to turn it out. At the end of the day breeding, fine equipment and caste can sometimes be trumped by the instinct and effectiveness of an underdog. This deep purple ruby pour is nearly opaque in the glass and has a dark complexity about the nose that belies a much more friendly and straightforward flavor. Richer and smoother than you might expect, there's plenty of cherry fruit and sweet spice notes with some wood showing through. Never fear, this "Yard Dog" will become your best friend. Excellent value ($10). Closure: Screw cap. Alcohol content: 15%.

Wine maker notes
The wine label may have a snarl, but the wine itself is terrifically fruit forward and friendly, with juicy ripeness and depth. Yard Dog. The old faithful friend. A beloved household pet the whole family adores. The quintessential companion. The same could be said for these Aussie varietals, almost every winery owns one. It is said that the personality of a dog will reflect that of its owner and the character of a wine will reflect that of its maker. But winemakers beware! If you do not pamper the pooch you may find that the hand that feeds the dog may be bitten. Beware of the Yard Dog.
