Wine AdvocateA big crowd-pleasing and quaffable effort that's a blend of Syrah, Grenache, Mourvedre, Petite Sirah and Zinfandel, the latest N.V. Troublemaker is loaded with sweet blackberry, charred meat, tobacco and vanilla. Full-bodied, rich and loaded with fruit, it is a straightforward party wine that should be consumed over the coming year or two. Drink now-2015.
Wine EnthusiastMade in the velvety-soft, rather fruit-forward wine style that's so popular these days. It's got flavors of cherry jam, brown sugar and sweet buttered toast. The blend is of Rhône varieties plus Zinfandel.
