This is quite a sweet wine, rich and heady in chocolate, blackberry and blueberry jam and caramel flavors. It could be more concentrated, as it’s a little thin. The variety is Petite Sirah.
A bit on the sugary sweet side, but otherwise this is a nice cocktail sipper. Shows good acidity coupled with pineapple, Meyer lemon, lime, green apple and spice flavors. Would score much higher if it were drier.
This Cabernet is soft, superripe and dry, with blackberry and raisin flavors and a raisinskin bitterness. It’s pretty rustic, but easy beef dishes, like tacos, will coax out its inherent richness.
Disappointing, given the vintage and pedigree of the grapes. Opens with tons of smoky oak covering blackberry, cocoa, black cherry and mint aromas and flavors. Loses points for coarseness and a short finish
Here’s a red blend to drink with barbecue or with hearty winter stews. It’s a full-bodied, country-style wine, with plenty of fruit and tannin, and a touch of chocolate-covered raisin.
