Wine Review: This very dark garnet colored red blend from Paso Robles is very nice. It opens with mild birch beer and black cherry bouquet. On the palate, this wine is full bodied, balanced, very smooth and fruit forward. The flavor profile is a blueberry and blackberry blend with notes of stewed plums. I also detected hints of clove and oak in the background. The finish is dry and fades away nicely. This wine is a quaffer and a second glass is a must. I do wish it had a little more structure for food. I would just drink this tasty wine on its own until it is gone. Enjoy - Ken

Winemaker Notes: Big dark fruit aromatics. Reminiscent of blackberry jam, followed by some baking spice and graham cracker. Demanding from the beginning with robust blackberry fruit up front, the mid palate quickly turns chewy and lush. Pleasant toasty notes begin its lengthy finish.

Organic status: not organic
