Tried over a year ago, what a difference some aging makes, was good, now great! Blend of 80% Cab Sauv & a 20% Blend of Petite Sirah, Syrah, & Zinfandel. Deep Ruby with aromas of dark blue and black fruits adding complex spice which comes from the Sirah/Syrah/Zin blend. On the palate flavors of blackberry and blueberry currants with vanilla, cacao, oak and leather. Fine dusty tannins, long finish ending with fruit, spice and sweet oak character. Will continue to improve but delicious now!

Cabernet Sauvignon, Petit Syrah and Zinfandel blend of steak accompaniment! Always a crowd pleaser. And the 2014 is a good vintage.

Nice and big. Syrah shows more than the other grapes. Might as well drink apothic though.

Credit where it's due...smooth and good fruit if not super soulful.

Finally had this one. Very good but honestly, probably not worth the price point.

Loved it. Big boy but with rounded tannins and big bold fruit.
