Made predominantly from Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot, this bold full-bodied blend is invitingly floral in cherry blossom and coconut flakes, the oak showy and present. Cherry and cassis flavors are rounded and rich on the palate and the body brawny and broadly defined in tannin and oak.
This John Legend-led partnership is a blend of 55% Petite Sirah, 39% Merlot, 5% Cabernet Sauvignon and 1% Petit Verdot. Bright, focused red cherry and cassis meets soft rounded tannin that contributes to a seamless offering of velvety texture.
This broad-shouldered, full-bodied wine shocks and awes with its clove and black pepper notes that are as savory as a fine steak, with which it would pair brilliantly. Oak and tannin form a shield of power that girds the black fruit for further battle.
This big, bold red in a leopard-spotted bottle is made from a majority of Cabernet Sauvignon, and it's powerfully concentrated with tobacco aromas, boulder-sized tannins and cherry-like fruitiness. Ancillary sparks of cedar and sage contribute intrigue.
This wine is notable for its freshness of fruit, its black currant flavors awash in tannins, bringing spicy tobacco notes and stony coolness to the vibrant fruit. It’s approachable and juicy, a wine to pour with grilled lamb.
This is a voluptuous, sexy cabernet from a mountain appellation better known for powerful, often austere wines. It comes from a site at the top of Spring Mountain, where the vines face southwest. The supple tannins meld fruity dark chocolate with raspberry and cherry-skin flavor. What ties the wine to Spring Mountain is the detail in the tannins, the earthy spice that lasts.
