(2011 Vintage) This seamless blend offers a heady mix of blueberry and cherry aromas, underscored by layers of vanilla, clove, molasses, black pepper and lavender. On the palate, it is velvety and round with lush and lingering berry and cherry flavors supported by well-integrated tannins. Balanced acidity adds brightness and lift of brambly fruit, which carries through to a long, satisfying finish.
Tasted at the Duckhorn Total Wine event & enjoyed it with NY strip steak & asparagus for my 30th birthday dinner
Rich, full flavored. Soft tannins. Wonderful!
Light, pair with mild food

Wine Enthusiast(2010 Vintage) Each of the three varieties in the blend brings its own unique contribution. Zinfandel, the majority, gives spicy wild-berry flavors and robust body. Cabernet Sauvignon lends its firm tannins and deep black-currant flavors, while Merlot adds a soft, sensual mouthfeel. The resulting wine is easy to drink now with almost anything calling for a full-bodied dry red wine. - The Wine Enthusiast
