This is a blend of 38% Merlot, 18% Petite Sirah, 17% Petit Verdot, 11% Syrah, 9% Charbono, 5% Cabernet Sauvignon, and 2% other reds.  It is a very approachable, easy drinking red wine.  15.1%ABV.  Purple in color, opaque and bright.  The nose is nice with black raspberries, some char, and bit of black cherries.  Medium to full bodied.  On the palate, this is tasty.  Black cherry and black raspberry fruit with a great texture.  Good finish.  This should drink well for the next ten years.  A nice wine for burgers or ribs off the grill.
