An unlikely blending of two big reds — one from Bordeaux and one from Rhone — resulting in a nuanced, balanced, and supremely drinkable wine. The Cab's dense, dark fruits and notes of cocoa pair off with Syrah's pepper and smoke.
"The wine opens with aromatics of white pepper, anise, prune and red cherry. This leads to medium to heavy weight flavors of red cherry, rose petals, red raspberry, pomegranate and hints of leather. The bright minerality combines nicely with the dense fruit flavors in this excellent new release by Peachy Canyon. (Best 2016-2025)" - June, 2016 (OB) International Wine Report
Balanced, fruit-forward, and deeply opaque. A complex bouquet of herbal and smoked notes stir with scents of dark stonefruit. Prolonged tannins and an extended finish make this a great wine on its own, as well as with food.
"Deep and hearty black cherry, vanilla, cola and black-pepper aromas make for a lush, imposing and yet classic nose on this bottling. It’s simultaneously soft and powerful on the palate, with black-cherry foam, crème de cassis, vanilla custard and melted milk-chocolate flavors set against a backbone of vibrant acidity and plush tannins. It’s a decadent mouthful." — M.K.
