Deep garnet color and dark cherry and smokey oak aromas. The floral spice notes weave seamlessly around a core of chocolate and blackberry jam flavors. In this wine, the Markham Vineyards' Merlot provided velvety texture with distinct chocolate notes. The Cabernet Sauvignon provided the deep, smokey notes that weave throughout. The Petit Verdot is all about structure, while the Petite Sirah adds blackberry jam and floral spice you can't help but love!
I very much enjoyed this blend. A little tight out of the bottle but opens up nicely with swirling. Th fruit is Napa with a fruity nose, not as smokey as the winemaker's comments. Nonetheless, a very drinkable smooth medium bodies fruity wine. It held up for 3 days under vacuum and the nose never faded. I would by again!
