Wine Review: This dark ruby colored kitchen sink red blend from V. Sattui opens with an inviting blackberry, blueberry, black licorice, and oak bouquet with some earthy notes along with some light cola. The medium plus body is smooth, balanced and structured with some bright acidity. The flavor profile is a complex blend of black currant, black cherry, blueberry, dark chocolate, black pepper, oak, and herbs. The finish features some dry and sticky tannins that linger before fading away. I would recommend pairing this with a ribeye steak. – Joe

Winemaker Notes: This pre-prohibition blend of old vine reds is purple-hued and opaque in color, with enchanting aromas of espresso, black tea and a hint of violets and blueberry. The wine is big in stature, with black cherry, dark chocolate, mocha and a delightful earthy note. It offers a mouthful of black fruit flavors and aromas, with supple tannins that are round on the palate and balanced by subtle oaky spice and a lingering finish.
