Wine Details

Deliciously plump and juicy, with plenty of stuffing and structure to carry all that lush, velvety fruit. Its beautifully and clearly delineated aromatics are intense and complex, with ripe cherry, mocha, black olive and crushed rock. What you get on the nose follows on the palate - great structure, with those same cherry, crushed rock characteristics. Finishes dry, with lingering spice notes. Perfect translation from nose to palate.

Cam Confidential

Lot 384 is composed primarily of Dry Creek Merlot, with a bit of Cabernet Franc and Cabernet Sauvignon from Napa to finish the blend. The wine, purchased from a high-end Sonoma producer, was barreled down for 14 months. In a tough vintage, this wine passed with flying colors.

This wine is very food friendly and stands up well to sausage. Expect we will also enjoy with burgers or pizza.

It is a very nice tasting red wine. It is well balanced and not too strong. I recommend it.

What is nice about this blend is that it is different from the over the top dry cab blends, introducing Cab Franc at a limited amount must be the cause of a creation that really makes a great value blend. Some acid, but just enough to be acceptable.

Soft fruit and berry nose. Rich fruit with a slightly tart finish.

I recently picked up several different wines at Costco, including this one, and liked it so much I went back and bought more. Had this with a pepperoni pizza tonight, and there is enough acid to make an excellent companion to the pizza. Not a powerhouse structure, but well balanced, good fruit, vibrant and nice long finish.
