Smells like a juicy fruit bomb with cranberry, and then meat, tomato, and spice on the nose. Mild oak. More dark fruit on palate. Finish medium at best. Acid medium-minus. Not bad.

Scheming! That is all I can say at this point.

Dried cherry and dried fig on the nose. Deep and dark wine. Very bright purple/blue hues. Low acidity. Instant blueberries and dark fruit. Lots of alcohol that dries out your mouth. Definitely oaky.

Big. Decant for at least a couple hours. Great with a nice streak. Real nice blend.

Plum, blackberry, rhubarb, on a reduction, fresh preserves style nose. Palate is black fruit driven, with hints of black pepper and licorice. Tannins are soft and integrated. Just enough restrain for my palate.

I'm a fan of Mark Herold's unusual blends, not so much his annoying habit of recycling the same names. (His wines are like his children, and he's like George Foreman.) Acha, to me, is a fantastic tempranillo and while you wouldn't mistake the two, this is reminiscent. This is the blend (not to be confused with the 100% carignane with an identical label). This is still young and has an alcoholic heat, the petite sirah is evident. This is not subtle, and sometimes that's what I feel like.

Blueberry compote and forest floor with crushed rock. Super nice, smooth petit sirah with Tempranillo
