    Winemaker's Notes:

    This blend impresses you right from the start. Aromas of red cherries and raspberries are infused with mocha and spice hints that give up the secret for what's about to come. Your first sip washes broadly across your palate like a flood of sweet, fresh fruit and the viscous mouthfeel keeps the flavors lingering for a while. The hints of baking spice and some oak keep the fruit flavors fresh and lively. This is a wine that you'll want to stack up in your wine rack (or closet) for any occasion. Great all by itself or with all your favorite red wine foods like burgers, ribs, lamb chops, and even pizza.

    Critical Acclaim:

    The 2008 Cocina Blend composed of 60% Malbec, 20% Bonarda, and 20% Syrah aged for 12 months in 20% new French and American oak before bottling without fining and filtration (as are all of these red wines). Purple-colored, it has an enticing bouquet of cinnamon, Dentyne gum, cigar box, violets, black cherry, and blueberry. Medium-bodied, round and sweetly-fruited on the palate, it has plenty of savory spice notes, enough structure to evolve for 1-2 years, and a lengthy, pure finish. Drink it from 2010 to 2016.

    Delightful blend, the syrah and malbec combine nicely. Recommended! I can find this for $10 locally.
