A blend of 26% Cabernet Sauvignon, 26% Syrah, 24% Zinfandel & 24% Petite Sirah, aromas of ripe red fruits and spice. On the palate cherry and strawberry, slightly jammy, with cacao and sweet spice. Fine tight tannins, medium, ending with smoky oak character. Tasting Sample!

I guessed Petite Sirah, Zin, and Merlot. I was surprisingly close. It is a Syrah, Zin, PS, and cab blend. Not bad, but not very interesting. Would buy if it was on sale.

The BEST table wine out there for years- classic red wine red, sweet aromas of chocolate covered cherries, rhubarb and cedar. Always a great standby.

Awesome value! This give Mondavi Private Selection a run for the money. It's bold, pairs with virtually anything, and is a fantastic value. Great every day wine (because yes, I drink wine almost every day).

Transparent amethyst color in the glass. Purple fruit on the nose. Medium body and acidity. Juicy purple fruit and oaky vanilla on the palate. Minimum tannins. Nothing spectacular, but not intended to be. Still, shoulda ponied up the extra three bucks for the Chianti Classico Riserva.

Round, easy drinking red that can pair with red sauce or enjoyed on its own
