My Rating 87 Points.
Dark ruby in color with a short purple rim.
Fruity nose of blackberries, currants, plums, oak, vanilla, licorice, spices, mint, chocolates, coffee and peppercorn.
Full bodied with medium acidity and long legs.
Dry and extremely fruity on the palate, with blackberries, black currants, sweet cherries, raisins, dried figs, alcohol, spices, chocolates, wood and black pepper.
Medium plus in finish with soft tannins and tangy cranberries.
This California blend is surprisingly good. Well balanced and enjoyable by itself or with food. Simple but drinking very nicely now with a nice mouthfeel.
Good right out of the bottle and good for parties or as a sipping wine, all by itself.
I paired it with a burger and fries.
13.9% alcohol by volume.
