This one never disappoints — just a simple red table wine. Could be better, but could also be a lot worse. The nose is very fruity with grapes and raspberries. In the mouth it’s a bit jammy with lots of fruit — cherries, raspberries, and plums. The Petite Sirah comes through in this vitage with hints of licorice and peppery spice.  But it’s more than a mouthful of fruit — this wine has enough tannins to add some balance.  Nothing fancy or complex, but always enjoyable.  And it’s a great value — lots of wine for this price.
