Winemaker's Notes:

"Huge and colorful, and very youthful. For density and lushness on what can best be described as basic Merlot, you're not going to find it much better than this. It's all blackberry, chocolate and berries, but somehow they've squeezed some earth and spice in there as well. Great for a quick steak or hamburger. Best Buy."
-Wine Enthusiast

Dark and deep red. Attractive aromas of black plums, smoke, herbs and graphite notes. Hints of chocolate and spices, and a generous touch of toasted American oak. Mouthfilling texture, soft but well structured.

Enjoy with Chicken, ham, mild cheese, risotto and pasta served with mushroom sauces.
