This is a very enjoyable wine from Lodi California. Big and bold with medium acidity and long legs.
Showing black fruits with chocolate notes, tobacco, oak, vanilla, licorice, spices and peppercorn.
Nice and easy drinking with or without food. Might be too sweet for some.
I paired it with a cheese board and light appetizers.

Decanted for 3 hours before trying it. Medium garnet color with an almost brick colored edge. Excellent aromas of dark fruit and baking spices. Great tastes of blueberries, black plums, and blackberries with some interesting notes of dried fruit and leather. Excellently integrated fruit, tannins and acidity. Super sleek tannins and a medium length finish. Paired very well with pork tenderloin tonight. — a month ago
An explosion of dark ripe cherry, plum and BlackBerry. Hot at 15% a.b.v. , but smooth with no burn.
Mild tannins, lingering finish. If your reading this, please try it. $15 at my local liquor store.
One of the best red blends I've tried.
