A bit of tannins. Needs air and time on the 2010. Was a gold medal winner.

Bordeaux blend on the cheap. This is amazing for the $15 price point, though better in warmer vintages than '10. Just a great everyday drinker...

Desert Wind Ruah is better than their cab. Big mouth feel and a nice finish.

First Ruah for me, but very enjoyable. Dry like a Cabernet Sauvignon, but versatile like a Merlot.
