This is great “house” wine with a palatable price. Warm, pepper-dusted, ripe cherry with earthy chocolate and a hint of mint and worn leather. Full-bodied and fun, it’s a luscious blend of merlot, cabernet sauvignon, cabernet franc and zinfandel. 3.5 stars out of 5. Sweetness=1 out of 10 (dry to sweet). $13
