XS Red Blend


For many years, the varietal wine was the champion in California and today varietal wines still outsell all others. However, the blended red wine is beginning to steal some of that market. By crafting wines from unique lots of varietals, the winemaker has the ultimate control. To our tastes, this wine is Excessively good! It is over the top, and takes no prisoners. The Expert and careful selection of Syrah, Zinfandel, Petite Sirah and Barbera makes a unique and truly Exciting wine. This wine will Exceed all of your Expectations and is a great Example of the changing tastes in wines.

Winemaker's Notes

Of course this wine is dark, it is a red wine after all. Of course it is going to be flavorful, why would we make it otherwise? Does it have berry aromas and flavors? Check. Are there aromas of a cinnamon covered apple? Yep. How about a flavor that lasts and lasts, with hazelnut, mesquite smoke and chocolate covered cherries? Oh yea. This wine is the complete package, from the first sip, to the end of the bottle it is beyond compare, it is Extraordinary!
