Impeccable vineyard sourcing is key to this rich Cab-Zin blend bolstered by Merlot, Syrah and Petite Sirah. It’s a blue-red hue with distinct notes of cocoa, sarsaparilla and cola wafting from the glass. Then comes the dark fruit attack of dried plums, blackberries and black cherries cooled by herbs and a bitter hint of tar. Overall it’s smooth and inviting, with a finish that persists. You just might feel a little unhinged after your first bottle.
