Tasting Panel Review
Opaque garnet color and rich aromas of plum. Chewy, velvety, and intense, with notes of chocolate, mocha, and spice; dense and balanced. Mostly Petit Verdot with Malbec and Cabernet Sauvignon.
The Arsonist Red Blend is our left of center take on the classic Bordeaux blend. Anchored by Petit Verdot the grace of the wine shows in an elegant bouquet of plum, raspberry and mocha. The blend of three powerhouse reds delivers full flavors of blackberry, cherry, chocolate and pepper spice; barrel aging adds a nice dose of vanilla oak. The finish lingers with dark fruit flavors, herbs and old-fashioned saddle leather. This is a big-flavored wine that pairs well with the richness of grilled lamb chops or a well-marbled rib-eye steak. 52% Petit Verdot, Dunnigan Hills26 % Malbec, Dunnigan Hills15% Cabernet Sauvignon, Dunnigan Hills7% Cabernet Sauvignon, Alexander ValleyAlcohol 13. 9%
