To naturally soften tannins and enhance varietal complexity, Tony allowed the grapes to undergo extended maceration. He then pressed the wine and transferred it to French oak barrels (45% new oak) to undergo a long malolactic fermentation for roundness and depth. Using Syrah and Zinfandel as blenders, adds a dark velvety feel to the lush berry flavor profile of the Merlot. Dense black fruit aromas are followed by blueberry and chocolate flavors, and supple tannins on the palate.

Wine SpectatorA robust style, with inky notes to the dark currant, dried sage and fig flavors that glide across the palate. The sanguine finish is richly spiced. Drink now through 2020. 4,000 cases made.

Wine EnthusiastSpicy, soft and robust in mouthfeel and texture, this elegant varietal wine offers firmly defined flavors of cedar, tobacco and plum. Lengthy and easy to enjoy, it'll do well at the table with a range of fare.
