WineO Mark Review

This red blend from Clay Shannon captures the essence of California with a little old world touches. At around $20 its a good value red wine from California.  

On the nose, it presents a symphony of dark fruits like blackberries and plums, complemented by subtle hints of oak, earth, coffee, and vanilla. 

Then on the palate is both robust and elegant, boasting velvety soft tannins and a balance of fruitiness, earthiness, and acidity. You can taste some dark chocolate, dried herbs, along with the dark fruits mentioned above. 

It pairs well with hearty dishes and stands alone as a testament to the art of blending.
