Signed Upshot bottle by winemaker Justin Seidenfeld. Excellent wine for the price. Punches above its weight. Notes of blackberry, black cherry, baking spices, cassis and menthol on the palette. Well rounded tannins.

Interesting wine. 37pc Zin, 30pc Malbec, 27pc Merlot, 3pc PV, 3pc Riesling (!?). Violets, chocolate, cassis, elderflower. Bit of everything. Is everything too much? Not sure. #wbc18

Wow what a nice surprise. Didn’t know what to expect with a Zin blend. Loved the soft vanilla flavor and fruit finish. Very low tannins. Loved every drop!!
