It's not a big-boned wine, but its powdery tannins give it texture to spare. Mixed plums and cherries are out in full force on the palate. A blend of Cabernet, Shiraz, Merlot and Cabernet Franc.

Smooth and generous, offering a cascade of sage-accented cherry and plum flavors, mingling black olive and herb notes as the fruit persists gracefully with a welcome sense of sweetness on the finish. Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Shiraz and Cabernet Franc. Drink now through 2008.

A Bordeaux blend (plus 28% Shiraz, that is) with pretty blackberry and blueberry fruit flavors. Has earthy aromas, with an edge of Sweet Tart. Not a deep wine, but just fine for everyday consumption.

A bright, refreshing style, this has presence and a nice range of currant and plum flavors that linger nicely on the polished finish. Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Shiraz and Cabernet Franc. Drink now through 2011.
