2004 Cheyanna Red Wine
This is a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Petite Syrah, and Merlot.
Blackberry notes on the nose but really not much there on the nose.
Black pepper, anise, cherry, and blackberry on the palate. Fran gets tobacco notes, but to me it's just oak and spice. In spite of the spicy notes, the tannins are nice and smooth. This is an excellent wine, smooth enough to just enjoy, but complex enough to think about.
This is a repeat buy for us...we've had this wine several times which means it's a great wine and a value ($13 or so). I'll be buying it again without question and seriously wish I had more space to store wine becuase this is case-worthy.
