A first-time red blend from Nefarious. It's a bit lighter and smoother than the varietal reds, but still carries the winery's signature of firm acids, stiff tannins, layered aromas and tightly wound fruit. Red berries, currant, pomegranate and stone are the most noticeable flavors, with some pretty chocolate in the finish.
