Review: Sokol Blosser Meditrina{6} Red Wine

Named after the Roman goddess of wine and health, Meditrina is Oregon winery Sokol Blosser’s nonvintage red blend, a mix of Pinot Noir (23%), Syrah (52%), and Zinfandel (25%). The {6} indicates this is Sokol’s 6th rendition of this wine.

Kind of an odd bird, it’s both jammy and thick. The Pinot notes come through as overripe cherry, Syrah provides a little earth, and the Zin hits you with an alcoholic punch plus that unmistakable, sweet jamminess. Unfortunately these notes are not much in balance with one another, and nowhere is this more evident than on the finish, which is cloying and a little charred.

  1. Previous renditions were no better.

    Not to make accusations, but it almost seems as if this wine is just a blend of whatever was left over or was not good enough to bottle alone.
