This is a blend of 50% Cabernet Sauvignon, 30% Sangiovese and 20% Zinfandel. Spicy, light and fruity, it sports plenty of acid beneath tart red fruits. The addition of Sangiovese gives it a little bit of leather and toast for added interest.
A distinctly musky scent carries aromas of mushrooms mixed with toast and grapefruit, if you can follow that trail. Tart and fruity, it shows green fruit flavors with more of that musty, sweaty saddle undertone, carrying into a high-acid finish. —P.G.
