i tried this red blend of 52% cab, 17% sangiovese, 16% merlot, and 15% cab franc at my local wine store. nice, complex nose with aromas of of chocolate raspberry, spice and some earthy tones. the palate was smooth and juicy with flavors of plums and blackberries, followed by chocolate and pepper. impressive red wine with nice complex flavors that will work with many of your favorite winter foods like chili or stew. sells for about $18.
