Awesome for the price-point. Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Syrah, PV, and Cabernet Franc blend with good structure, chalky, velvety tannins. #2011 #redblend #cabernetsauvignon #theparing #california

Really dig this wine. Tons of dark fruit, weight and just the right balance of tannin and acid. As the name suggests great with food.

At a new Italian dinner place with no corkage on the first bottle. Pleasant with our pasta dishes.

Decent blend. Good flavor but harsh finish. Nowhere near some of the other ratings

Intense ruby red in appearance, nearly black. Intense aromas of ripe dark fruits, mushrooms, hint of bell peppers. High acidity, high alcohol, big tannins but round palate. Medium+ finish.
