Deceptively sweet aromas of strawberries, raspberries and rose petals. The flavors are dark, rich, lusciously mouthwatering, with cherries, boysenberries, tart plum skins, hints of leather, sweet pipe tobacco, and coffee beans. The tannins are firm, but not a bit edgy and the finish lingers with just a touch of anise. A truly lovely vintage.

Wine AdvocateA smoking value, the 2013 Firehouse Red, a kitchen-sink blend of mostly Cabernet Sauvignon, Syrah and Merlot, offers lots of dark fruits, toasty oak and spice in a high-quality, medium to full-bodied, ripe, rounded and straight-up delicious style. Buy it by the case and drink it over the coming couple of years.

Wine EnthusiastThis is a kitchen sink-style blend of 11 different varieties with Cabernet Sauvignon, Syrah and Merlot making up nearly 75% of the mix. It offers direct, appealing notes of cocoa, sugared plum, blueberry, black olive and high-toned herbs. The black and blue fruit flavors are sugary-sweet and palate-coating, with cocoa accents on the finish.
