Syrah, Zinfandel, Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Petite Sirah Sweet and oaky on the nose and yet at the same time this offers up lovely notes of herb inflected raspberry fruit framed but note of bitter greens and tarragon and mint. A bit heavy in the mouth but smooth as felt without a hint of either tannin nor acid present in the mouth. A bit heavy but not chewy, this does deliver plenty of gently spiced black cherry, earthy plum and slightly meaty flavors with a hint of black olive on the palate. The finish is a bit short and does turn a bit chewy and extracted. I can see the appeal here, it’s a remarkably smooth and easy drinking wine with an attractive flavor profile and reasonable complexity but it does lack some life in the mouth and particularly on the finish which has an underlying bitterness. 82pts

WOW! This is a hidden gem. I believe we opened a 2007 and were amazed by this full-bodied wonder. I will be buying this by the case. For the price (under $16) it is AMAZING. It has the nose and body of a high-end cab...this was a true find!!!

'Intense wild berry and mocha flavors are accented by black cherry, currant and anise notes. Well structured, yet subtle tannins create a luxuriously smooth mouthfeel followed by a complex, rich and elegant finish.' - Randy Ullom, Winemaster

Intricate layers of black cherry, plum, currant, and wild berry mingle with a hint of spice. The soft, delicate tannins of this Bordeaux varietal carry these aromas and flavors to a long lingering finish.

Winemaker's Notes:

Intricate layers of black cherry, plum, currant, and wild berry mingle with a hint of spice. The soft, delicate tannins of this Bordeaux varietal carry these aromas and flavors to a long lingering finish."Black cherry, currant and red cherry flavors with background notes of violet, chocolate and cedar. Textured and graceful on the palate with finegrained tannins conveying gorgeous fruit through a lengthy finish. The wine is smooth and the tannins are refined and elegant, in true Merlot character." - Randy Ullom, Winemaster
