Would've blind guessed Zinfandel, except for the tannins, it's just as jammy as can be. A cuvée of all five Bordeaux varietals, with blackberry jam, ripe bursting blueberries, and cassis. Enjoy a simple, easy, sipper. The many glasses here gulped it down!

Really tasty but don’t recall specifics as I missed the opportunity to comment when tasting. Would definitely drink again, and again 😁

Medium-light ruby hue with high saturation. Aromas and flavors of blueberry, cassis, cherry, earthy, eucalyptus, graphite, licorice, plum, raspberry, strawberry, and violet. Medium-plus body; ripe, medium-heavy tannins; and medium-plus acidity. Complex nose; robust mouthfeel; lengthy finish. Drinking perfectly now. Proprietary blend of (mostly) Merlot, Petit Verdot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Malbec, and Cabernet Franc.

Holy moly. Best $17 Napa I've had in a decade. Needed a breather but great stuff.

Heavier bodied red. Strong berry flavors, grippy but calms down a bit with time. Beautiful medium red color. For me not really a summer wine much better in cooler weather.
