This superb value mixes barrels from all the red wines in Sineann's portfolio. Mostly Pinot Noir, Merlot, and Zinfandel, there are small amounts of Cabernet Sauvignon and Petit Verdot as well. It's dark and spicy, the flavors well integrated. It adds up to a potent and powerful all-purpose barbeque red, loaded with black fruits and finished with a kiss of caramel.

This 2015 Red Wine displays an intense and vibrant ruby color, along with notes of dark red cherry and hints of chocolate.

Powers, Horse Heaven Hills "A.V.A. Collection" Red Blend 2014 $21
Layered elegant aromatics of huckleberries, black cherries, currant along with a touch of fresh herbs and smoke lead into a complex wine on the palate. Packing loads of dark rich fruits such as black currant and dark cherries married with haunting herbs such as anise, the finish is very elegant and complex with firm tannins and a nice balance of acidity
Stolpman, Para Maria de las Tecolotes, Santa Barbra, CA. 2016 $23
Para Maria, a fantastic Syrah, already shows off its breadth and complexity at a tender young age. Lively, peppy balance and juicy brambly blackberry. Graphite and cracked pepper create an impression of seriousness with a hint of savory wood from the whole-bunch carbonic fermentation.
Bodegas Beryna, Blue Monastrell, Alicante, Spain 2011 $16
Sight Clean bright and intense, dark cherry red color with maroon edges and violet reflections. It has appealing notes of ripe and mellow red and black fruit that give way to some spicy, floral, and roasted nuances. Nice acidity, very pleasant velvety tannins and a looong finish. A balanced, fun, honest and round Spanish wine.
