A crowd pleasing (in a metaphorical sense, due to COVID) red blend that has just enough complexity to keep it interesting. Blackberries, black tea, and notes of ceder on the nose. Dark fruits carry over to the pallate with sweet tobacco on the finish. Paired well with fresh pasta & a dessert of tiramisu! ($8.5) [10/30/20]

V14. Young wine. Starts out with fresh crushed bright cherry juice bouquet. Nice tart Grenache like fruit. Within an hour the bouquet became toasty, and the fruit deepened to an peppery, blackberry an earthy mix. Unbalanced, absolutely, but every sip was actually enjoyable.
Will obviously open up and balance out to a deeper styled wine.
