Weisinger's is a pop-to-son winery here in Ashland. Strong local following & sells out his products each year. However, I aim my usual s. Oregon complaints at their wines...should be doing much better things w/ the great grapes he's getting.

The Mescolare is described by the vintner as: "A delightful Italian style blend of Cabernet, Pinot Noir and Nebbiolo."

TNs: nose of briary fruit, spice, hint of smoke; red fruit flavors w/ good acidity & pleasant smoke; however, this wine just doesn't seem harmonious...the sum is less than the parts. Didn't work for me, & overpriced at $18.

I don't think you could find such a blend ANYWHERE in Italy, even in Oltrepo Pavese so I guess it is about as "Italian Styled" as industrial "Italian Style" pseudo gelato at the supermarket.....

As I've said Roberto, we've got decent grapes here, but certainly nothin' of significance re: vinification...talent, understanding, basic skills...nothin'. cp
