Ugly Label Files I: Dynamite Vineyards

5 Feb


With labels that look like they were painted by, well, ME, it’s a wonder the folks at Dynamite sell any wine at all.  But the Ugly Label Files are about getting behind the label to discover ugly-labelled-wines’ inner beauty.

Dynamite Vineyards Cabernet Sauvignon 2005
Red Hills – Lake County, California

Nose is rich and warm, with cassis, blackberry jam, vanilla and oak. Palate is full-bodied and pleasant, with more blackberry, chocolate and cherry cola. Good varietal character and typical California concentration. Probably drinking at its peak, after two years in the bottle. Not available in BC yet, but if it comes in under $20 (and it should), it’s a good value. 86 points – Good Value

Check out the entire portfolio of unfortunately-labelled wines from Dynamite Vineyards.
