Grown in the Santa Clara Valley foothills this local Bordeaux blend of Merlot, Malbec, Petit Verdot, and Cabernet Franc has a nice balanced of flavors. We enjoyed it with a mix of gormet pizzas and it was enjoyable with each slice. A nice blend of fruity and tartness with a smooth finish. One of our regular purchases.

Citrus and grapefruit and a little pear with a smooth slightly buttery texture. Paired nicely with salmon and tempura shrimp maki (roll) sushi.

Pineapple, lime, tropical fruit and little creamy with a light finish. Paired well with Baja fish tacos and later with apple pie and vanilla bean ice cream. Will buy again for the price.

Initial impression was a raisin nose. After drinking it a bit and letting it sit for an hour, I suspect the bottle we tried was corked. I poured out the bottle after half a glass.

Dark red color, opened up well after decanting for an hour. Aromas or dark cherry, blackberry, slightly sweet cigar, oak and vanilla. The taste was dark fruit and chocolate and very balanced with a dry finish. Nice structure. Very nice wine. :)

Nose has a bit of fig, vanilla, and coco. Sweet taste and light tannins. Easy going and drinkable wine.

It was a wonderful companion to a juicy burger. The price makes it even nicer. Will buy more.
