Reviews and Ratings
89 POINTS & Top 100 Value "Blended with a bit of grenache and syrah, this petite gives a lot of sunny California fruit flavor for the price. It's neither overtly sweet nor impenetrably inky, offering a black-raspberry tang and spicy pine and licorice aromas woven into its chewy tannins. Inexpensive as it is, you might consider decanting it. Try it with lamb burgers."
