Mostly Cab Sauvignon, with some Merlot and Syrah, deep Ruby with aromas of berry fruit and smoky herbs. On the palate black cherry and blackberry flavors with spicy mineral notes. Fine tannins, medium finish ending with a slight mineral character.

Dark garnet purple in the glass. Shy (at first) nose of cassis and dark plum. Echoed on the medium full palate with slight patent leather notes and medium acidity. Low(ish) tannins mean that lighter cuts of beef (Filets, petite sirloin) will be its friend, especially with a flavorful rub. Drink now to 2021.

Great Bordeaux blend from Hedges in Washington state. Delicious nose, smooth on the palate, and a pretty rich finish. Very nice for $21.

Deep ruby color and high saturation. Aromas and flavors of bell pepper, blackberry, graphite, leather, pepper, plum, raspberry, sage, and tar. Medium-plus tannins and medium acidity. Complex, structured, and balanced. Pair with red meat to bring out the sweetness and complement the savory and umami flavors of the food. Blend of 76% Cabernet Sauvignon, 14% Merlot, and 10% Syrah. (P.S. my burp smelled like mushroom.)

Nice light spice, not too dry. Very drinkable wine with slight peppery flavors
