Dark ruby in color with a short red rim.
Fruity nose with blackberries, blueberries, sweet cherries, strawberry pie, wood, vanilla, chocolates, licorice, spices, pencil lead and black pepper.
Full bodied and bold with medium acidity and long legs.
Very fruity on the palate and dry, with sweet cherries, plums, blackberries, licorice, herbs, cloves, vanilla, oak, herbs, leather, tobacco, coffee, milk chocolates, mocha and peppercorn.
Long finish with soft tannins and caramel.
These Californian Red Blend is always enjoyable. Well balanced, jammy, bold and big with lots of chocolate and coffee flavors and a smooth mouthfeel.
Showing nice complexity, but might be too fruity for some. Has high alcohol, but it doesn’t burn at all.
Good right out the bottle and good by itself or for parties.
I paired it with chicken skewers and stuffed grape leaves.
15% alcohol by volume.
