The D vs G stands for David versus Goliath. This is a blend of Shiraz, Marselan, Carignan, and Petite Sirah. Purple in color with a thin ruby rim. The nose has black raspberries, black cherries, spice and slight tobacco. Medium bodied. On the palate, the black raspberries come thru over a gravel base. Moderate acidity. Right now, the Carignan and Shiraz dominate the blend but the Petite gives it a nice backbone. It will be interesting to see how it ages. This drinks nicely on its own and will work well with grilled meats or fowl.
