Technically this is a California "Meritage" blend of Cab and Merlot, but it's better to think of it as just a bit ole fun mouthfull of rich and juicy red wine. It's rich and creamy-textured and loaded with dark blackberry, raspberry, and chocolate-covered cherry fruit and a big dose of toasted marshmallow. Like the label, it's kind of brash and over the top - in a fun way.

Under $20 Cab Merlot blend from Napa! Not bad. The tannins get a little lost but still brilliant for the price!

Slightly tart but with a smooth finish. Hints of a fruity flavor. Mildly acidic.

Fresh and fruity, would be a solid burger wine. It's the 1% magic that really sold me though.

A big, jammy California red. Not exactly a thinking person's red, but well-executed for this style.

Deliciously fresh fruit notes, especially fig and blackberry. Cocoa and subtle earth notes on the finish. A very nice wine.

An excellent blend of Cab and Merlot that brings out the best of both. Would definitely drink again.
