Very smooth, not dry at all. Sweeter, but very drinkable. The bottle disappeared quickly. One of the better wines I’ve tried in a long time.

Not bad. Just not memorable. Their dueling pistols is much better blend, of course I am biased to those grapes.

Ok. Too acidic and harsh for my taste. A disappointing bottle. Far inferior to their excellent Zinfandel

Harsh and thin. For this much acid punch, I prefer lemon juice. A decent finish does not make up for its miserable start.
