Made by a highly awarded Washington State winemaker, Occam’s Razor takes its name from the heuristic known as the law of parsimony: given that everything is equal, the simplest answer tends to be the correct one. In other words, simple methods – like minimal intervention in the vineyards and traditional winemaking processes – result in mind-blowing, unadulterated wine. With its rich bouquet of blackberry, cassis, and spice, and its densely layered flavors of black cherry, tobacco, cedar, and cocoa, this Syrah and Cabernet-based blend easily competes with bottles that cost $30 or more. Rhone wine aficionados will love its incredible structure and refinement, and California Cab drinkers will fall for its luxurious and weighty texture.
