Quickie: Coppola Vendetta 2013

The wine: 2013 Coppola Vendetta 2013.

The backstory: I bought this in a liquor store in North Platte, Nebraska. (God forgive me.)

The specs: Cali blend of two reds, mostly Cab Sauv with a bit under 40% Malbec.

The pairing: Leftover Mexican casserole and broccoli & onions on the stovetop.

The verdict: Not bad. Tough to say its worth the $20+, but it drank well, decanted for half an hour or so, with a nice layer of tannins and adequate balance from acidity. Fruity, with ripe red and purple fruits dominating. A simple wine. Don’t turn a free glass (or bottle) of this down.

Cheers,

Mark
