Unique as you would expect with Grenache, Syrah, and petite sirah. First taste had me thinking nice fruit, full body, and lingering finish; half a glass had me thinking this wine is crazy good.

Not bad, but not great. Lacking any nuance or depth.

Big boy juice "Gary Vee". Big in every way. Fruity, earthy, oaky, hot and spicy. This is a stylistic wine and very true to its American roots.

Fleshy, super concentrated and extracted. With food, the wine became too fruity and the alcohol was way too present for my taste.
