Fourth of the blind red wines at this quarter's S&E Wine Club, which for red was either Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc or Merlot from either Rutherford or Stags Leap District. Thanks Tom and Andrea!

Deep purplish red. Layered nose with anise, licorice and dark fruits. HEavy tannins (7.5/10) and full bodied. Lots of minerality, dark berries, twigs, cinnamon, anise, spices and some great structure. Long and lingering finish. Have only briefly heard of this wine before and quite impressed. Drink till 2028.

Intense! Vibrant dark red fruit flavors of cherry, currant and mulberry. Spicy oak fully integrated with this high energetic, flavorful wine. Paired it with our first steak we bought at our local Costco!!! Yes, in Meridian. That was Tammy’s requirement before we could become a member 🤣. Deng good steak!! Even better wine.
