Pale. Not much flavor. Meh. Certainly not a full-bodied red, as the label suggested. 2015 vintage.

Holy fruit! Loads of unusual black and blue fruit such as blackberries and blueberries, hint of cinnamon spice on the back end. Deep purple color. Medium to medium plus acidity. Firm tannins, light oak, long silky finish. Blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Petite Sirah, Sangiovese. Not bad!

Medium ruby, sweet dark fruits - ripe plum, blackberry, some oak coming through. I liked it.

Very good blend from Lodi California. Bought at Kroger. Would buy again. Light fruit, dark notes, starts a little fruity but mellows to a milder dark, burnt flavor.
