CC brought this wine over for our TV viewing night. It retails for $9.95/bottle at Royal Blue. It's a proprietary blend of SEVERAL varietals, including Petite Sirah, Syrah, Montepulciano, Barbera, Nero d'Avola, Tempranillo, Malbec, Aglianico, Petit Verdot, Cabernet Franc, and Tannat.

Aroma - dark fruit, a little smoky
Taste - dark fruit, slight vanilla, a little wood, soft tannins, a little smoky

We had the wine with Parmesan cheese/Braeburn apples/multigrain crackers, potato chips, chocolate-covered bacon, and apple pie. Yum!
