Petite Sirah, Petit Verdot, Cabernet Sauvignon, with some Malbec and Cab Franc for support; dark ruby in color, with earthy, black cherry, and vanilla scents, stewed plums and dark cherry moving into bright red fruit flavors, slight tannins on a luxurious finish.

Medium weight and easygoing, this blend of 32% Cabernet Sauvignon, 30% Malbec, 11% Petit Verdot, 7% Cab Franc, 6% Petite Sirah and 4% Merlot has modest tannins and cranberry flavors and will both please a crowd and pair with a wide range of foods.

A supple richness pervades this blend, mostly cabernet sauvignon, malbec and petit verdot, with a little franc, syrah and merlot. The texture is built on a chocolate layer cake of tannins, lighter than most cabernet blends from Napa Valley, and not at all blocky. Itrsquo;s a gentle, well-mannered red to serve with roast beef.

Dark ruby. Aromas of cherry, dark chocolate and licorice, with a faint herbal note in the background. Ripe and broad on the palate, which offers hefty dark fruit flavors that show a touch of back end warmth. In a lush, weighty and slightly loose-knit style, with good finishing cling and smoky persistence. Irsquo;d like this wine even more if it had more shape.

The Spur celebrates the esteemed art of blending, combining the best the vineyard has to offer to handcraft the most interesting and sumptuous wine possible. With barrel aging, this wine displays enticing aromas and flavors of blackberry and blueberry, with hints of chocolate, anise, graham, and toasted oak. Mature tannins and balanced acidity lead to a smooth, lingering finish. - Winery
