This is a multi-vintage, multi grape cuvee. It is released on a regular basis, this being the 13th iteration. It is a blend of 65% Cabernet Sauvignon, 20% Syrah, 12% Malbec, 2% Petit Verdot, and 1% Mourvedre. This is really quite good and an excellent value. Deep ruby in color. The nose is dusty and warm with nice black cherry fruit. On the palate, the black cherries come thru along with some sour cherries. Medium tannins. Moderate finish. This rinks quite easily and would be a nice choice for parties. It will go with all but the lightest of foods. Drink over the next couple of years.
