My Rating 86 Points. 
Price $8.

Dark ruby in color with a purplish rim.

Fruity on the nose with blackberries, blueberries, plums, cherries, green pepper, licorice, vanilla, oak, coffee, smoke, chocolates, spices and black pepper.

Full bodied with medium acidity and nice legs.

Fruity and dry on the palate with blackberries, currants, chocolates, coffee, wood, vanilla, tobacco, spices and black pepper.

Medium finish with soft tannins and peppercorn.

A nice, yet simple, red blend from California. A Great vintage, well balanced and full of ripe fruits.

Good right out of bottle and easy drinking. Great for parties and good by itself. I Paired it with cheeses and crackers.

13.5% alcohol by volume.
