“Great red wine for summer!. It was fruit foward with mostly cherry undertones and a smooth finish. It was not figgy like many syrah blends can be. I chose your product for the label and Paso Robles region which is ofinterest to me in wine tasting. sincerely," - Debi G.
“There is a lot of experimental blending going on beyond the traditional Meritages and Rhone blends. I am used to drinking Tannat as a varietal in Uruguay, and this is the only blend in California I know of that uses it. Read the label and you think this is a melange, not a blend- Wrong. It works perfectly, and as a food wine every day for palates tired of the more aromatic varietals, this is perfect. I will be drinking a lot more of it!” - Kim Stevens
