A Zin-based blend with proportions of Syrah, Petit Verdot, Sangiovese, Petite Sirah and Malbec, this is a burly, decadent wine, fruity in blackberry and blueberry, with a swaddling of black licorice and chocolate. With restrained oak, it remains full bodied and velvety on the palate, sure to please many palates and low-key dinner nights.
