“Everything that Chris Brockway does is amazing in my eyes; from the way he seeks out unusual parcels of grapes, to the cool urban winery he works from in Berkeley. Oh yes, and the quality of his wines; it's hard to pick a favourite but the Love Red, a blend of mainly Carignan, with some Valdiguie and Syrah, is always a pleasure to drink. Fruit driven with excellent fresh acidity, Love Red definitely has a place in my heart. ”
“Fascinating cherry blossom drifts over sour but ripe plums with a redcurrant-bright note at the back. Rustic, sauvage framboise gives that big boost of acidity, with perhaps a little bit of brett underneath.”
“What's not to love in this juicy, fruit-driven blend of Carignan, Valdiguié and Petite Sirah? It's vibrant, fresh and full of life with strawberry and red cherry fruit. Acidity is there too and the light body makes it easy to enjoy another glass. One of the many top wines from Brockway's urban winery.”
“Fast becoming a bit of a cult listing for Roberson, this blend of Carignan, Valdigué, and Petite Sirah is modern day Californian red par excellence. It has a beetroot juiciness and earthiness, with gentle tannins and a lovely spicy freshness.”
