This blend of four red grapes, none of which is Cabernet or Merlot, strives for a Bordeaux-like style, but only half achieves that goal. It has the right weight and body, but it lacks clarity of flavor and punch. The nose is smoky, with burnt-rubber notes. There's moderate cherry fruit at the core. The finish is long and amply smooth.
