Corvidae Rook Cabernet Sauvignon Merlot Syrah 2008

i really enjoy blends, and this one from owen roe selections corvidae wine company is worthy at the nice price of $15. the blend is 15% cabernet sauvignon, 45% merlot, and 40% syrah. the nose has lots of dark fruits, black cherry and cassis, with some really nice smokey, earthy notes too. the palate is big and bold, with plum and black cherry flavors. nice earthy flavors from the syrah and some velvety smoothness from the merlot. nothing shy about this one. good with grilled meats and red sauce pasta dishes.
