Nicely balanced and well thought out for a 6 grape blend. Awesome with spaghetti and marinara.

Truly an amazing wine. I got it from the castle about a year ago, and this wine is fantastic. Ripe cherry and plum flavors, beautiful spiced notes- black pepper and cardamon. Finished smooth and has a great linger. Great red blend with a lot of complexity!

Decanted and swirled. Aroma of old world dusty dark fruit. Big big dark fruit up front the a burst of tannic dryness in the middle. Then a fast finish to a mild dusty dryness.

A simply wonderful cab aroma. Delicious to inhale. Long dark fruit and great balance. Wine seems under rated to me. Maybe I just got a great bottle at winery.
