91 Points, Gold Medal - 2018 San Francisco International Wine Competition
Monte De Oro Winery's signature red blend, consisting of Syrah, Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Merlot and Zinfandel, is a smooth, elegant , full bodied dry wine with a deep ruby color with high viscosity and slow moving tears on the glass edge. It is well integrated with medium+ acidity, tannins and alcohol producing youthful aromas and pronounced flavors. Its bouquet provides for densely packed black, blue and red fruits with lavender, anise, vanilla, chocolate and red & black peppercorn accents. This wine is nicely balanced with tastes of dense, ripe and jammy blackberries, bramble, bing cherries, currants, blueberries, dry blue plums, strawberries and red plums. There are hints of vanilla bean, cocoa powder, toasted coconut, sweet smoke, anise and cinnamon.
