Lots of bang for the buck here. Offers mouth-filling, juicy blackberry, cherry, pomegranate and coffee flavors in a bone-dry, soft wine, with a fairly complicated tannin structure. Drink now.
Shows lots of mixed berries and caramelly oak on the nose, while the flavors veer toward simple cherry and vanilla. Light in body and supple of tannin; an easy-drinking Syrah with mass appeal.
Nice wine. Made from the area where Russian River Valley meets Alexander Valley, the wine shows warm-climate ripeness and cool-climate acidity. Bursts with juicy lime, fig and melon flavors leading to a dry, white peppery finish.
