This is a collaboration between Long Shadows and Precept Brands. Half Cabernet and the rest an unusual mix of Merlot, Syrah, Cab Franc and Barbera, it's a kitchen sink compendium of grapes from a dozen vineyards scattered across the state. Predictably, it's a diffuse, unfocused red blend, which does not express grape or region in any identifiable way. A good quaffer.
