An aged Bordeaux blend from Sonoma. Couldn't tell if it was made in an old world style or the age had just mellowed it. Guessing a little bit of both. Either way a smooth, easy drinker.

Deep purple color. Smooth to finish. Somewhat dry. Paired well with pork cutlets.

Really nice red blend. Deep purple color. Dark fruit on the nose. Ripe black plum. Taste medium dry. Not a lot on the finish for such a heavy looking red but a nice Bordeaux style red over all. Good with steak.
