The Full Review

This wine is huge. It has 15.5% alcohol, which is way up there. It has dark stewed berry fruit aromas and some mocha. It has all the makings of an intrusive, intense wine, that can’t pair with anything other than itself, but it isn't. Instead, the palate is soft and smooth with well integrated tannins and deep blackberry fruit and a mocha core. The acidity (so Central Valley) is nice and high so it won’t overwhelm you. I’m thinkin' messy BBQ slaw and some sunshine with this wine. Enjoy!
