"Composed of 46% Syrah, 39% Merlot, 13% Petite Sirah, 1% Petit Verdot and 1% Cabernet Sauvignon, the 2014 Red Blend features a medium to deep garnet-purple color and lovely kirsch, crushed black berries and red currants nose with touches of black pepper, baking spices and garrigue. Medium to full-bodied, the palate gives lovely fresh, juicy red and black fruits with peppery undertones and nice rounded tannins, finishing on a spicy note. 6,010 cases produced." (WA)

"A tight and fresh red with blackberry, blueberry and spice. Some walnut, too. Full body, soft and easy tannins and a flavorful finish. Nicely done. Drink or hold." (JS)
