A big, deep, impressive wine that feels flashy from the first sniff to the last swallow. A Merlot-based Bordeaux blend, with a splash of Petite Sirah, it’s enormously rich in berries, cherries and dark chocolate, with a pleasantly earthy note of olives and herbs. The finish is bone dry. This is a very fine value in a full-bodied red wine of such charm.
This is a Bordeaux blend based on Cabernet Sauvignon, with a drop of Petite Sirah for color and tannins. It’s rich and deep in blackberry, currant and dark chocolate flavors, and balanced with big-time tannins and a fine cut of acidity. Doesn’t seem like an ager despite the astringency, so drink it soon with rich meats and cheeses.
