This California red blend is always enjoyable. Big, bold, fruit forward and somewhat sweet.

Showing black fruits with chocolates, mocha, caramel and coffee notes.
Dry to off dry on the palate and good right out of the bottle.

Nice length on the finish with soft tannins and tangy raspberries.

Good for parties and good by itself as a sipping wine.

A couple of years ago I really liked it, now it seems a little too sweet for me.

Aged in Bourbon barrels.

17% alcohol by volume.

91 points.

Oak monster, vanilla, heavy dark fruit. It was fun. Nice weeknight drinker that holds good flavor over days.

Delicious! Dried fruits with a smokiness from the bourbon barrels

I've never eaten a candle, but if I had, this would have been the tastiest candle I've ever eaten.

Has a very well rounded palate presence. It has a full range of flavor. Tastes like Apothic with a sherry finish. Has a slight jammy flavor and 17% alcohol. It really isn't bad, it's just that hint of sweetness that turns me off a bit.

From my first taste to my last, the flavors changed and my pallet enjoyed it's evolving blend.

I really have no respect for this. Alcohol is ridiculous. So unwieldy and out of whack in its attempt to be the biggest wine you'll ever have. Syrupy texture and dusty fruit like Port wine before a hot, caramel/vanilla finish sets in. Might have been okay without the tart, raspberry jam mid palate. So fucking flabby. I'm out.

Dark ruby in color with a short reddish rim.

Extremely fruity on the nose with black cherries, black currants, dried figs, raisins, alcohol, licorice, vanilla, cedar, cloves, spices and black pepper.

Full-bodied, smooth, bold and rich, with medium acidity and long long legs.

Dry to off dry on the palate and very fruity, with black cherries, blackberries, figs, raisins, vanilla, sweet raspberries, tobacco, spices, spice box, wood and peppercorn.

Long finish with soft tannins and tangy cherries.

This is a great red blend from California. Uniquely rich, extracted and interesting. Has that Bourbon Barrel taste to it, with lots of fruits, and maybe some residual sugar. I also get some Port characteristics.

I was hoping for it to chill down by now, as a 5 year old, but it is still very vibrant and extremely fruity.

Good by itself as a sipping wine and good right out of the bottle. Might be too much for some 😉

Aged for 3 months in Bourbon Whisky barrels.

17% (OMG!) alcohol by volume.
