Wine Review: The opaque and midnight blue colored blend opens with a blackberry bouquet with a hint of smoky oak. On the palate this wine is full bodied, balanced and rich. The flavor profile is a tasty black cherry and blueberry blend with notes of vanilla oak mixed in. I also detected a hint of RC Cola towards the end. The finish is dry and its fruit flavors and moderate tannins stick around for quite a while. I would let this wine breathe for a bit and as it get even better with a little air. Then serve this terrific red blend with a dry-aged ribeye at Del Frisco's. Enjoy – Ken

Winemaker Notes: Bright red and black fruit aromas reminiscent of Bing cherries and cassis pop from the glass. The ample mid palate is framed in chewy yet fine tannins which resolve nicely with flavors of black berry fruits. The extraordinary balance of elements of midpalate, acid and tannin structure make for a versatile wine for pairing with an array of cuisines.
