This interesting blend includes 20% Syrah from the Sierra Foothills. The Cabernet provides structure and varietal character. Syrah adds a fat, meaty note. New oak gives it a spicy sweetness. The result is delicious, a dry, complex wine to drink now or soon.
Here’s a soft, fruity and sweet Cabernet, rich and spicy in raspberry, cherry and blackberry jam. Lots of new oak adds smoky vanilla and caramel notes. It’s delicious, but pretty direct, lacking some complexity and structure.
