Very nice blend from the Sierra Foothills. Petit Syrah, Barbera, Petit Verdot, and Syrah. Vanilla accents. Revisited 7/27/19: rating affirmed, very drinkable.

Ripe, chewy, berries and chocolate. Mostly Petite Sirah, fruit forward, and rich. Not trying to be much more then a weekday pizza wine. Does it well enough.

One of our favorites. Easy drinking with big flavor. Not too bold. Nice berry but not sweet.

Very big wine, mostly petite sirah. Dark chewy wine. Great w osso bucca, or a really fat steak.

Loads of cooked blue fruits, oak, and toffee tones. Corse tannins fight it out with some acidity but I can't begin to tell what grapes or where this might be from. Smells pretty but not my style

Aroma of dusty dark fruits. Initial jamminess with a hint of zin-like pepper spices. A slight dusty taste.
