Winemaker's Notes - Dense, lush and ripe, the Arsonist 2012 Red Blend is the ultimate reminder that, sometimes,it's perfectly fine to play with fire. A deep garnet red, this blend approaches with strong chocolateand toast aromas—barrel oak, caramel, ripe black cherries and cassis. Flavors of bramblyblackberry and coffee lead to a long, lingering mocha finish. The Arsonist is a big, chewy winewith firm tannins that take a long ride on the palate. 



Pair with baseball-cut steak, barbecued baby back ribs or bacon-wrapped filet mignon.



 



Critical Acclaim





Wine Enthusiast 90 points - "Harmony and a sense of reserve mark this rich but alarmingly named wine. It is deeply colored, smooth and supple in texture, and filled with satisfying but not too powerful flavors that are supported by fine-grained tannins. Lush blackberry and black cherry linger on the finish. Editors' Choice."



Tasting Panel 90 points - "Velvety and juicy with smooth, lush blackberry and plum; deep, rich and balanced; long and dense, supple and spicy; chewy and ripe with hints of cinnamon. 52% Petit Verdot, 24% Cabernet Sauvignon, 24% Merlot. "
