J. Runquist 1448 has a big, deep, thick color one would expect from a wine that is largely Petite Sirah. The aromas are concentrated ripe black fruits; currants and cassis. The bouquet is
full of smoky, roasted, chocolaty oak. The flavors are big and rich, full of caramel, chocolate and mocha. But this wine also delivers a strong fruit component of ripe blackberries. Smooth and
supple with deep color and intensity of flavors, this wine is truly a perfect introduction to the Jeff Runquist Wines 'House Style.'
