i tried this several years back and really enjoyed it and revisited it recently at a wine tasting. here is the line up for this blend…60% cabernet sauvignon, 30% merlot, 10% syrah. the wine will draw you in with the nose is has, with aromas of plums and spice and cedar. the taste was black cherry and smoky wood followed by some spice and a really nice dark chocolate note. the blend on this wine changes from year to year, so it is worth looking into and comparing. the '05 i tried was mostly syrah and was wonderful. sells for about $13. this would be a nice compliment to grilled meat dishes.
