Super-ripe raspberry and bright red cherry make for a seductive first sip. This racy Central Coast blend has notes of cocoa and well-integrated French Oak. The wine is opulent yet balanced. The finish lingers with flavors of cassis and dried plums. Aromas of bright raspberries, red cherries, and strawberries jump out of the glass. Black tea and dark chocolate emerge as the wine opens.
Blend: 64% Grenache, 34% Syrah, 2% Carignane

The 2014 Proprietary Red Blend Taken is a blend of 60% Cabernet Sauvignon and 40% Merlot and represents reasonably good value. The color is a healthy, dark ruby/purple and the wine exhibits floral red and black fruits, medium body, soft tannins and an easygoing style meant for immediate consumption. It should drink nicely for at least another 2-3 years.
