Dark ruby in color with a short purple rim.

Strong nose of blackberries, sweet cherry pie, plums, figs, raisins, vanilla, oak, licorice, spices, smoke, pencil lead, tobacco, coffee, chocolates and peppercorn.

Full bodied, buttery, jammy and bold, with medium acidity and long legs.

Dry and extremely fruity on the palate with blackberries, black currants, plums, cooked strawberries, spices, pencil lead, vanilla, wood, chocolates, mocha, earth, dark coffee and peppercorn.

Long finish with fine grained tannins and tangy raspberries.

This California Red Blend is always enjoyable. Showing nice complexity and a great mouthfeel. Well balanced and good by itself or with food. I paired it with cheeses and light appetizers.

A blend of Syrah and Petite Sirah. Aged for 14 months in French oak barrels.

15% alcohol by volume.

Lodi Red blend for stage 5 #amgentoc a bit fruit jam with a bit of earth. Not quite in balance for my taste but pleasant enough. Like to try some of their old vines.

Tart. My mouth caved in. Flavor was enjoyable though. The cork was so saturated in purple, I could draw with it!😂

Color of dark purple with ruby hue. Nose of sweet blackberry, oak, tobacco leaves, vanilla beans, coffee beans, and indeed some dried strawberry. Nose is pretty taste of juicy grapes, sweet cherry jam, medium tannins, some more dark fruits, sweet with zesty note, oak, and savory. After is medium long with silky finish. A nice blend.

Delicate old school dusty aroma. Inky color. Deep dark tastes of dried figs and hint of coffee? Chocolate? Finishes with a quick tannic dryness.

Full-bodied, weighty, and jammy. Briary with dark chocolate notes. This in-your-face wine will be a crowd pleaser.
