Q: When is wine like good sex?
A: When it's PromisQous.
Actually, you don't have to be a grape slut to get the hots for this big, hardy, mouth-filling blend of Zinfandel, Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon and petite Syrah. All you need is 12 bucks and a thirst for a wine that's bold and spicy, tasting of ripe cherries and blackberries with hints of anise and cloves.
Ripe fruit and soft tannins don't mean it's a limp noodle, though, as it has just enough acidic backbone to get it up and keep it up from first glass to last. And if you're throwing a couple of burgers or steaks on the grill, maybe grabbing a pizza or some ribs or pasta drenched in red sauce, this non-vintage Californian is the yin to their yang.
