This Napa Petite Sirah /Malbec blend is very enjoyable. Nicely balanced with a great mouthfeel. Shows nice complexity too.
Good right out of the bottle and better as it opens up. Will be better in a year or two, but already enjoyable even by itself.
A blend of 60% Petite Sirah, 20% Malbec, 6% Cabernet Sauvignon, 6% Merlot, 5% Zinfandel and 3% Syrah.
14.8% alcohol by volume.
