Ah, wilderness! All forest image for front label - cool. What Sasquatch would drink, perhaps. Dense purple red, highly extracted pigment. Blackberry, mint, a touch of barnyard in nose. Blueberry and blackberry flavors, black pepper, coffee and cherry in finish. Mild seed bitterness, skin astringency in aftertaste. Nice blend of Syrah, Petite Sirah, Grenache, Sangiovese (61/19/15/5). A winery worth watching

Pretty nice red blend. Not my favorite vintage from them but still pretty solid.

Big wine, worthy of a stiff cheese, no need for the high ABV though.

A good wine, but still needs some time in the bottle. Will go well with a variety of grilled red meats.

Refreshing, light, balanced aroma. At $18 Costco, good value.
