This was a very interesting yet slightly over rated red blend. For this of you that gave this 4-5 glasses I have to assume that you are also big fans of MJK. This wine had plenty of time to open and had incredible bouquet of spice and red fruits. Immediately after opening and even to the last drop this blend had a spice tone, little fruit, leather and an overly chalky taste. While this is not bad, the price of this more entry level red from Caduceus pisses me off. There is zero history from Arizona for wine making. There is zero history from the winemakers besides what family members have produced for table wine. Somehow, somewhere the purchase price for this bottle was almost $50. Way way over priced. On the high note, it was definitely different and the bottle was beautiful.

a beautiful treat for the palate, but sadly unavailable most places, especially where I live. On a quest to buy some somewhere.

Bold and powerful wine. A bit spicy but goes down smooth and easy. The flavors produced are amazing for such a young company. The aroma to the nose is so pleasant I find me smelling it frequently and falling in love.

The Chupacabra is our Shape Shifter red blend. This years moving target is Syrah, Petit Sirah, Cab Sav from Luna County, New Mexico. Full bodied yet restrained. - Winery

Caduceus Le Cortigiane Oneste is a 50/50 blend of Barbera and Merlot. The aromatics are balanced between cherry tart and allspice notes, and the wine has excellent structure, with crisp acidity and firm tannins.
