Predominately CabSauv & Zin, shines through but without the over saturated and extracted fruit. Dark, inky, peppery notes with medium tannins that dissipate evenly without just falling off entirely from the flavor profile. Well structured.

I hesitate to rate this wine as I am fairly certain it has started to oxidize. A blend of Cabernet, Zinfandel, and Sangiovese it seems to drink more like an overly oaked Zin. Garnet in color, thin, lacking structure. Aromas of vanilla, underripe red fruit, and smoke. I give it an 8 since my husband seemed to enjoy it and it was not bad enough to pour out. Just rather uninteresting. Only paid $15 so win some, lose some. 😐
Note: I have heard wonderful things about Kuleto wines and will revisit them.

Mineral, sour cherry, dry- kind of flat and not as bold as expected
