43% Cabernet Sauvignon, 40% Syrah,
13% Merlot, 3% Barbera, other mixed red.
Teeth-staining dark red with hints of purple. Vibrant aromas of crushed red berries and cherries, notes of cola and cinnamon, and a hint of earthiness. Berry flavors explode in the mouth with
cinnamon and cassis in the mid-palate leading to slight cocoa powder tannins on the finish.
A very rich, full-bodied style.
This wine is perfection with grilled tri-tip of beef roast—a signature dish of the Central Coastal winegrowing region. In Paso Robles, the beef is grilled chuck wagon-style over a red-oak fire. Serve with other great cowboy fare like baked beans, garlic bread, and a green salad.
Neither here nor there. Tastes like a weak Cab. I really cant figure out whats wrong with this one. :( If you are looking for a mixed red in this (price) range, I would rather go for Kendall Jackson Summation that has atleast some distinct flavor.
