THE best sub-$20 California wine I've had in a while. Primarily Merlot (80%) and Cabernet (17%), this is a exceptional food wine. Espresso and vanilla, and bursting with black cherries. What a value

This pulls no punches when it comes to under $20 Northern California reds. Rich fruit of mostly black cherry and a touch of blackberry, along with mocha, and a bevy of spices, including nutmeg, clove, anise, and vanilla. There's a wild, herbaceous character that makes it clear this is mountain fruit.

Green pepper and a little bit of earthy spice there on the nose. Flatter on the palate with some green pepper and cassis.
