Go West For A Southern Crossing, Day or Night

2007 A to Z Wineworks Night & Day Southern Crossing, Rogue Valley, Oregon

2007 A to Z Night and Day Southern Crossing

I popped and poured this red blend (36% Cabernet Sauvignon, 26% Merlot, 20% Syrah, 10% Sangiovese, 4% Grenache, 4% Cabernet Franc) from the Rogue Valley in Southern Oregon.

The nose presented dark berries and raisin along with some fig and spice.  I also got a little of the alcohol on the sniffer.

The palate was mostly tart fruit (cranberry) and raisin.  It was a little “hot,” but the alcohol burn subsided after being opened for a bit.

The Southern Crossing wasn’t the best wine ever, but it was serviceable.  I paid about $17 for the bottle, but I’m sure that it can (and maybe should) be had for a bit less.  I would not hesitate to open this wine to pair with some burgers on the grill during an impromptu early autumn cookout.
