Aaron:  This blend featured tons of raspberry on the nose and made it hard to sense much else.  The flavor was much milder than expected however and presented mocha – more specifically chocolate covered espresso beans – to the palate.  I enjoyed the hint of boysenberry followed by a gentle finish with barely noticeable tannins.  91 points

Teri: Bogle puts together older vines of Zinfandel, Syrah, Cabernet Sauvignon, and Petite Sirah giving this wine unique characteristics. Slow legs, a rich dark color, and a dark raspberry and oak smell pair with the full and noticeable flavors and tannins of the wine. I tasted heavy flavors of cherry, oak, and raspberry that melt into a spicy plum finish. This bottle would stand up to full heavy foods and those wine lovers who crave rich full reds. 89 points
