Charles & Charles Cab/Syrah

This wine is a 60-40 blend of Cabernet Sauvignon and Syrah. Aromas of olive, smoke, mesquite, huckleberry and black raspberry are followed by plump, smoky blue- and red-fruit flavors, with the tannins giving a firm squeeze. They need some time to settle in, but there's plenty of enjoyment to be had.
