Reminiscent of California's heritage, but reborn in its new form. The new standard in wine, by the glass.
Opens with enticing aromas of ripe blackberries and bittersweet chocolate. Dark red fruit flavors coalesce across the palate with nuances of dried violets and baking spices, finishing with soft, dark-chocolate-like tannins.

I keep these on hand and give them to all of my clients, girlfriends, babysitters if they're old enough and anyone else including the mailman on his birthday! I love the red the best, but we don't discriminate against wine in this house!
Saved my order for when I was having a dinner party. Everyone loved it. Great red, with some age and very drinkable. Can't wait to try the rosé!
Is all over this wine, from start to finish. This is what I think of when I say I want a "nice glass of red wine". Yes to more.
It's just perfect. I never realized how nice having a glass of wine just available w/o opening a bottle was. I can tell you, it's amazing. Okay, enough on that. The wine itself. I've always been partial to Red Blends, and I typically prefer a heavier Zin-based red blend. But this is one impressive red. The Syrah-based blend is almost "softer" than what I usually buy and it's very very nice. Not sweet, just dry enough with a definite chocolate note from the vintage.
Love love love. Can't wait for the ROSE though!!!!! Just signed up, please pick me.
