Smooth Red Blend
Predominantly Merlot and Syrah, with much smaller percentages of Cabernet Sauvignon, Pinot Noir, Zinfandel, Cabernet Franc, Petit Verdot, Mourvèdre, and Grenache.
Medium purple in color.
Medium nose of black plum, blackcurrant, chocolate covered cherries, blackberry jam, and lavender, and vanilla.
Medium bodied, medium acidity, with medium tannins and medium-high alcohol.
Off dry and smooth.
Medium intensity flavor notes of black plum, blackberry jam, black cherry, blueberry, cocoa, blackcurrant, fading toward a medium finish of vanilla bean, dark chocolate, graphite, cigar box, mushroom, and black pepper
Honestly at the price, this wine is an excellent choice.
Easy drinking soft red blend.
