Dark ruby in color with a purplish rim.

Fruity nose of blueberries, cooked cherries, currants, raisins, vanilla, licorice cloves and wood.

Full bodied and soft with medium acidity.

Dry to off dry on the palate with blackberries, sweet plums, cooked cherries, oak, vanilla, licorice, cloves, spices and black pepper.

Medium finish with soft tannins and black pepper.

This simple red blend from California is drinking very nicely now. Well balanced and enjoyable by itself. Easy drinking (might be too easy) and simple with a soft mouth feel.

Good right out of the bottle and good for parties. A good everyday red at a good price point.

13.5% alcohol by volume.

Floral and cherry with a smooth, dry mouth feel. It's full bodied but not as heavy as a Cab. This wine could stand up to beef or barbecue.

Full body taste, good bang for the buck.I personally have a issue with wines with no vintage.

Really well-balanced. Closely resembles a nice red zin. Will buy more of this one! ....No clue what vintage (label silent).
