This is an interesting red blend. I guess because here are so many different varietals in this blend you get a little bit of everything. Definitely a mixture of dark fruits, primarily blueberry and blackberries there are several other minor scents on your nose. Even with some time in the decanter the was a jammy wine. It did relax a bit by the second glass. It is a nice full bodied blend. Because of all the different grapes you get a bit of everything on the palate. Some nice cigar box, dark cherry, touch of leather and hints of chocolate. It had a good drinkability level. Meaning that the wine was easy drinking and did not last long before the decanter was empty. Definitely a good wine for friends and conversation. #Bootlegwineworks #napacounty #Oakville #California #redblend

This is my Silvia fruit-forward big complex red. Clovey like you went to church and smelled the incense, but naughty and young and forward like you drank more than your serving from the blood of Christ chalice. This wine thrusts in your mouth and makes you repent. Drink up now, pray for forgiveness later.

It's trying to be Prisoner, and it's ALMOST working. A touch of RS cuts into what could a more complex and rich wine. A clear cut market chaser.

2013 vintage. A bit tight, needed to decant. A few more years and this would have been great.
