Aromas of cola, cream soda and caramel lead to expressions of vanilla and strawberry jam on the smooth palate, flavors of spice round out the silky finish.

Reviews:

"Bright and jazzy, this red has a refreshing zing to its raspberry and floral flavors, picking up a cinnamon note on the finish. Drink now through 2012. 110,000 cases made. HS" -Rated 86, Wine Spectator

"The blend includes 6% Syrah, and the wine has a pretty plum and blueberry color, that (perhaps by the power of suggestion) carries through into the aromas. Its tight, tart, and clean, offering a mix of berry fruits and a finish lined with vanilla and tobacco. Overall the balance is excellent, the wine juicy and fresh, and the blend just about perfect. P.G. (12/31/2010)" -Rated 87, Wine Enthusiast
