KitFox 2003 "Foxy" California Red Table Wine ($14.99)
Dark blackish-purple color, ruby glints against the light. Appealing fruit aromas, blackberries and blueberries and plums, are echoed in fresh-fruit flavors so juicy that they almost seem sweet, but snappy acidity provides balance and food-friendliness, with alcohol at a hearty but rational 13.5%. A blend of 75% Cabernet Sauvignon and 25% Syrah, it's a very user-friendly red, but there's plenty here to satisfy more serious "wine geeks." US Importer: (Oct 24, 2006)

FOOD MATCH: The wine's forward fruit, mouth-watering acidity and relatively modest tannins worked very well as a flavor match and reasonably well as a quencher with a spicy Cajun-style okra gumbo.



Wine notes in 'shelf-hanger' format:
We publish Wine Lovers' Page tasting reports in the familiar "shelf-hanger" size and format, to make it easy for wine merchants or collectors to print them out, clip and post them where this wine is displayed. We do ask, however, that the name, logo and URL be left intact, and that these reports be used with the specific wines rated, not different bottlings or vintages.

Our tasting policy:
All my wine-tasting reports are consumer-oriented. In order to maintain objectivity and avoid conflicts of interest, I accept no free samples from wineries or distributors, purchasing all the wines I rate at my own expense in retail stores.
