Wine Review: This pitch black colored red blend opens with a concentrated black cherry liquor bouquet with a hint of blackberry. On the palate, this wine is full bodied, balanced, rich and juicy. The flavor profile is a concentrated extracted black cherry and blackberry blend with notes of oak and blueberry. I also detected hints of minerality. The finish is dry and its moderate tannins build up and stick around for quite a while. This wine is a big boy and would pair well with barbecue steak tips. Enjoy – Ken

Winemaker Notes: Sourced from premier California winegrowing regions, Conundrum Red features dark red varietals including Zinfandel and Petite Sirah. It is rich, complex and approachable. With lush flavors of cherries and baking chocolate, this wine has fine tannins that create a silky smoothness. Be daring and drink Conundrum Red chilled to enhance its fruit profile and enjoy it any time of year.
