Wine Review: This very dark red colored blend is very good for a wine with such big production. It opens with a cranberry and black raspberry like bouquet with a hint of oak. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, balanced, and fruit forward. The flavor profile is ripe black cherry with hints of chocolate, caramel, blueberry and coffee. The finish is dry and it doesn’t really have tannins as its fruit flavors drift away nicely. This is a very nice everyday red. I would pair with a tangy pulled pork sandwich or a sloppy Joe. Enjoy - Ken

Winemaker Notes: These varieties come together seamlessly for a fruit-driven wine with fresh dark fruit flavors and jammy red fruit notes. The Zinfandel offers bold dark fruit flavors and spicy notes, complemented by the soft mouthfeel of Merlot. The Syrah adds layers of smooth blueberry, while the Cabernet Sauvignon delivers ripe fruit flavors and a firm structure. This decadent blend is framed by hints of black cherry, vanilla, and mocha.
