Wow! Was not expecting such a wonderful gem. Full of earthy funk, leather, tart red fruits, smoke and almost a spritzy, acid liveliness. This is the type of wine that reminds me why I joined the club to begin with. I never would have guessed it as a California wine if tasted blind. Lots of Old World goodness, even if a touch higher in alcohol. I thoroughly enjoyed this charming blend.
