Wine Review: This ruby red colored California blend has an inviting nose of black cherry, blackberry, tobacco, leather and black pepper. It's a medium plus bodied wine. I also found it to be savory and soft in the mouth. Its flavors consist of dark plum, mocha, currant and spice. Its nice lingering tannins during the finish made me reach for a second glass. It has enough structure to stand up to grilled steak tips, but is easy going enough to drinking alone. – Mark P

Winemaker Notes: Mountain Cuvee is a modern American blend that pays homage to the classic red clarets made famous by the vignerons of southwest France. A serious yet easy-drinking red blend, loaded with lush black plum, blackberry, and creamy cocoa flavors, with accents of smoke and black tea. Juicy, creamy and round mouthfeel with soft tannins supporting generous fruit. The long finish is full of dense berries and mocha flavors. A rich, fruit-forward wine intended to be enjoyed within five years of vintage.
