Deep reddish purple with aromas of bright berry/cherry fruit. Like swallowing a whole bowl of mixed ripe berries at once. Big body yet very balanced, with luscious layers of raspberry, cherry, and cocoa flavors. Just a hint of baking spice at the end brings it all together. Pairs well with grilled meats such as beef and pork, smoked ham, and even pizza with meat toppings. Incredibly fun to drink!

"60% Bonarda, 40% Malbec; Earth/mineral/underbrush; dense and layered, ripe, mouth-filling, impeccable balance, lengthy." -Rated 92, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
"Bright ruby. Captivating aromas of black cherry, mocha, coffee, violet and sexy oak. The middle palate shows lovely lift and cut to the juicy flavors of blackberry, violet and bitter chocolate. This is a very clever blend, with the malbec component providing energy. Finishes with firm tannins and very good length. A terrific value." -Rated 90, Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar
