Uncommon blend of 52pct Merlot, 29 pct Zinfandel, with petit Verdot and Petit Sirah. Oak treatment, vanilla, Cinnamon, ripe, dark fruit, and -----is that root beer? One of the most aromatic wines I've tasted recently.

Really like Sean Minor Pinot Noir but this Merlot, Zinhandel, petite Verdot, Petite Sirah blend seemed off to me. Not faulty but not to my taste.

Initial red cherry and plum nose was followed by dark chocolate, fig, and black pepper. Quite fruity on the palate as well with sweet almost syrupy undertone. Soft tannins. A bit dusty and minty too. 51% Merlot 29% Zinfandel 15% Petit Verdot and 5% Petite Sirah. Not bad at all.

May be it was the perfect steak served; but we enjoyed this wine from start to finish.

Mainly Merlot and Zin... let it sit for 1 hour and gets more balanced
