Lunatic, American Canyon, California, 2014 Red Wine, $7.99-$17.99, 86 points, launched with a deep blood-red color trending ruby with a clear wine noose and hanging sheets and tears on the glass wall.
Smells of red raspberry, blueberry, and a hint of funk moaned in whispers in the nose.
Full-bodied with indecent, but legal acidity unfairly paired with tannin below heavy flavors of prune and red cherry syrup.
The Lunatic terminated with a bit of leather, tobacco, red pepper, a hint of anise, and an unwholesome 14.5% alcohol.
Varietals were 32% Sangiovese, 24% Malbec, 20% Alicante Bouschet, 18% Petit Verdot, and 6% Petite Sirah.
As a pizza time wine for the ravenous, at the $7.99 toll, and a bonded finish, the Schizophrenic Lunatic was a hilarious value .
