Wine Review: This fruity red blend from California is dark ruby colored and opens with a fragrant cranberry and red currant bouquet. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, balanced, and savory. The flavor profile is black raspberry and red plum blend with notes of strawberry, cranberry, oak and black pepper. The finish is a dry and its fruit flavors are a little prolonged. This kitchen sink red blend would pair well with an Italian sweet sausage sandwich. Enjoy - Ken

Winemaker Notes: This sultry wine is a mosaic of French varieties with a focus on Syrah and Malbec and a base of Merlot. Soft tannins with layers of plum, raspberry, strawberry, pomegranate and hints of vanilla and cocoa, combine to create a wine that is smooth and fruit forward. Perfect for a celebration with friends or a fun night in.
