Only former winemaker Ross Wise knows for sure how much of the grapes were kiln dried for this big, powerful red from Organized Crime. The blend is nearly half Cabernet Sauvignon and the rest Petit Verdot, Merlot and Cabernet Franc. It has a 'wow' nose of deep, rich black currants, plums, cassis, anise, sweet tobacco, cocoa and punctuated by rich oak barrel spices. It is ripe and generous on the palate with the full spectrum of dark, ripe fruits, structured tannins, earth, dark chocolate and baking spices. It is a big wine that still needs time in the cellar to mellow and round out, but the wait will be well worth it. Or drink now with grilled red meats. Score - 92. (Rick VanSickle,, May 31, 2018)
