Dark ruby red color. Ripe fruit notes, blackberry, and boysenberry, some mild oak and toast. The wine takes a minute to open and evolve from earthy and herbal to fruity and spice. Big and bold with a long finish, pop a bottle at your next BBQ party.

This LOL red over delivers. It is a nontraditional combination of varietals blended together to create a rich and smooth drinking wine. The Graciano has earthy notes and a thick feel that add weight and body to the blend. The Tempranillo adds acidity and brightness, lifting the fruit as it adds complexity. The Syrah helps smooth things out while adding some color and smoky notes. The Cab helps throughout the wine and especially with nice tannins giving the finish more length. Easy drinking but complex enough for the connoisseur.
