This blend of red grape varieties is a stunning value from one of the world's greatest growing regions. It combines cabernet sauvignon, merlot, zinfandel and petite sirah in a harmonious and appealing wine with up-front, in-your-face black cherry and wild berry flavors. It's one of those dry wines that has so much fruit it leaves the impression of sweetness. This smooth and spicy wine is worth buying in quantity for drinking over the next year.
