Napa super-tuscan blend. Forward on the oak, tannin & heat.

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

This red blend starts a bit harsh . But after you take that first big swallow , the subsequent swallows are nice . Plenty of structure and flavors , this is a nice value at $30 per bottle .

+2 match with filets. Cab-forward blend features oak, tobacco, cherry. Earthy notes. Medium-plus tannins. Medium finish. Slight—very slight—smoke at the end.

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.
