Though the Sonoma County Petite Sirah represents only 27% of the blend, its dark fruit profile and firm tannins provide much in the way of the structure of this wine. St. Helena Zinfandel fruit adds brightness to this proprietary blend. 55% Zinfandel, 27% Petite Sirah, 11% Merlot, and 7% Cabernet Sauvignon. Very dark red color with rustic aromas of leather, dark fruit, and smoke. The fruit is framed by savory and spicy notes.
The full-bodied wine was aged primarily in French oak barrels - most neutral - and compliments BBQ, pizza, Italian food, and all meat dishes.

I agree with Stephen...this wine packs a big cherry and blackerry fruit punch but is also balanced and smooth. It has a complex nose, with spicy notes. Like bnk, I just ordered more Lucky for me and a friend as the label design is perfect for gift giving. At 10 bucks, this is my new everyday red.
Outstanding at this price!!! Drank four bottles and ordered a case.
Smooth & Supple
One of the best under $10 reds I've had. Pleasing nose, lots of fruit. Smooth over the tongue and a smooth finish. I will buy again at this price.
