I can always count on this blend to be a rich, full-bodied red!

I was recently asked about this, so out of pure curiosity and the need for a 12th bottle in a mixed case, I splurged. First impression: Nitrates. SO2 and maybe gunpowder or Black Cats meet brown sugar, Worcestershire sauce, soy sauce, balsamic vinegar, an excessive amount of liquid smoke, and hickory flavored wood chips, combine with teriyaki flavored beef jerky and blackberry jelly to yield a wine cocktail that transports you downwind of your neighborhood barbecue joint just as they set off fireworks.

This wine really feels like a wine to open during girls night when the girls don't really know much about wines. It starts off really jammy and almost has a syrupy flavor and ends with a bit of tannic bitterness. Not a huge fan.

So far this has been my favorite red wine blend. It is extremely smooth on the finish and the flavors are bold.

Deep Ruby color, dark fruits on the nose. Structured with diverse range of grapes including 27% Teroldego, 27% Petite Sirah, 12% Cab Sauvignon, and the rest a cross section of various varietals. The palate leans towards the sweet side with ripe fruits and notes of cacao. The wine is fermented in stainless but wood chips are added which to me makes the wind a bit funky. Medium finish, Easy drinking, but do it now!

This wine tastes like something that came out of the Earth. It's dark and a bit spicy, but still smooth. It's like the roots of a black flowering tree.

Pleasant blend. Lots of vanilla. Very suitable for pre-Friday night lights warm up.
