Dark ruby in color with a wide reddish rim.
Fruity nose of blueberries, black cherries, chocolates, coffee, smoke, spices, light wood and black pepper.
Medium plus in body with medium acidity and nice legs.
Dry and fruity on the palate with blueberries, cherries, plums, light wood, licorice, vanilla, tobacco, light vegetables and black pepper.
Medium finish with soft tannins and tangy raspberries.
This is a nice everyday red blend from California. Nicely balanced and fruit forward. Easy drinking, spicy and tangy.
Good by itself as a sipping wine by the porch. Way too easy to drink, so watch out.
I paired it with a charcuterie board of meats and cheeses.
A blend of 45% Cabernet Sauvignon, 35% Merlot, 10% Sangiovese and 10% Barbera.
14.3% alcohol by volume.
