Winemaker's Notes:

Blend: 86% Merlot, 5% Cabernet Sauvignon, 4% Syrah, 4% Barbera, 1% Zinfandel

Aromas of herbal tea, licorice and blackberry are accentuated by hints of spice and perfume. On the mouth, the wine is full bodied, but with a smooth mid-palate that showcases flavors of cherry and truffles alongside tobacco undertones.

My Notes:
