A 60-40 blend, this wine starts off with scents of vanilla, coffee and cinnamon, but backs that up with plenty of blackberry and plum fruit. It's big and full-bodied, but firm, defined by structure rather than lushness. Drink now-2012.

This wine is a truly harmonious blend of 60% Shiraz and 40% Grenache. The first whiff is pure strawberry fruit, followed by a swift kick of not-from-concentrate cherry juice aromas. Let us not forget the alcohol; oh, the alcoholandhellip; Upon first sniff, the alcohol, weighing in at just over 15% by volume, is very prevalent; it does, however, blend well with the toasty vanilla fumes from the oh-so-obvious oak. The mouthfeel is very velvety and rich with blueberry and cranberry fruit on the palate wrestling with firm tannins for the front-row seat. The finish has a lip-smacking acidity that helps to round out the immense fruit-forward style of this bruiser.

This fragrant red is simple and bright, with tart berry flavors and tarry tannin. For lamb chops off the grill.

Bright purple. Youthful red berry and cherry preserve aromas are clean and straightforward. Silky and sweet, with bright raspberry and cherry flavors, gentle acid lift and no obvious tannins. Drinkable now.

This 60-40 blend provides excellent value at this price. Itandrsquo;s full-bodied but silky-soft in texture, with aromas and flavors that range from plum to earth and cola to dried spices. The tannins melt away on the palate, leaving behind a long, mouthwatering finish. Drink now.
