WineO Mark Review

This is such a unique red blend using 50% Sangiovese and 50% Syrah grapes. And the fact that it comes a lesser known but up an coming region of  Ballard Canyon in Santa Barbara, is so intriguing!

The red wine has impressive juicy aromas of black currants, blackberries, vanilla, and a slight earthiness.

It’s medium to full-bodied with structured tannins and more dried fruits on the palate. There are flavors of blackberries, dried cherries, herbs, and oak. The smooth finish comes with chocolate, vanilla, and leather which create an elegant complexity to the wine. Very layered and enjoyable to drink!
