Clean, cedary and dynamic, with fine black-fruit aromas on the nose. The palate has a full, layered texture that impresses, while the flavors of black cherry, blackberry and boysenberry carry toasty, dark, chocolaty accents. Savory and warm on the finish, with lots of power. A blend of 75% Malbec with 20% Tempranillo and 5% Syrah.
A five-grape mash-up with savory aromas of roasted oak, smoke, bacon and clove aromas. Despite slightly crisp acidity, the wine is lusty and giving, with juicy cherry, cassis and other bright-flavored fruit. Good length and some chocolate on the finish send it away in fine form. 550 cases made.
On one hand this is a bulldozer blend that’s all about black fruit and heft. On the other, it’s fun, fruity and generous, with plump tannins and a luscious mouthfeel. Flavors of blackberry are dark, oaky and spicy, while the finish is regular in feel and toasty. A ripe, big, friendly blend of 70% Malbec with Tempranillo, Syrah and Petit Verdot.
