The label shows a 1936 Chevy one ton flatbed truck; the same truck is parked out in front of the winery. This nonvintage blend is roughly two-thirds Cabernet Sauvignon; most of the rest is Merlot, and Malbec fills in the final chunk. Soft, ready to drink and gently fruity, this all-purpose red will go with anything from hot dogs to burgers to pizza.
