|Dark ruby core with a lighter pink rim. Sweet
blackberry and cherry aromas up front are surrounded by smoke, soy
sauce, dried anise and a hint of barbeque ribs. Medium bodied in the
mouth with ripe fruit flavors of blueberry, black cherry and raspberry.
The tannins are fairly small and ripe, making this an approachable wine
that is ready to drink (but with enough oomph to last another 2 - 4
years). Nice lingering finish with a touch of Good & Plenty candy
again by bringing one of the best values to the wine world. A blend of
34% Cabernet Sauvignon (for red fruit and structure), 33% Malbec (for
spice and acidity) and 33% Syrah (for rich, dark flavors and body). All
this fruit and power needs balance to keep the wine from going over the
top, and the acid in the Malbec does the trick.
