( 44% Tempranillo, 36% Syrah, 13% Cabernet Sauvignon and the rest Graciano and Petite Sirah)
"Delicious and seductive, it boasts abundant notes of black currants, black cherries, licorice, forest floor and spice. Round, silky tannins, medium to full body and an excellent finish make for a heck of a proprietary blend the likes of which more California wineries should be producing. I understand the marketing significance of single varietal wines, but it is blends such as this that can be so attractive."

"Blackberries and plums on the palate, with some spice swirling about. Dark chocolate emerges with time. Rich, round, and delicious - 100% California goodness."
