My Rating 85 Points.
Dark ruby in color with a dark purplish rim.
Fruity on the nose with blackberries, blueberries, cherries, licorice, figs, oak, vanilla, cloves, earth, chocolates, tobacco, peppercorn and espresso.
Full bodied with medium acidity, and jammy with long legs.
Dry and extremely fruity on the palate with blackberries, black currants, plums, blueberry pie, oak, vanilla, licorice, cloves, coffee, chocolates, tobacco bitter vegetables and peppercorn.
Medium plus on the finish with soft tannins and spices.
A good everyday sipper. Good by itself or with food. Simple, but very pleasurable. Good right out of the bottle, but evolved some in the glass. Good party wine.
A Californian blend of Zinfandel, Cabernet Sauvignon, Syrah and Merlot.
13.5% alcohol by volume.
