Deep red with vibrant purple hues, the 2009 Colby Red is a unique blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Zinfandel, Syrah, Petite Sirah and Merlot. This wine shows enticing aromas of red and black fruits, which continue on a rich, smooth palate. The Cabernet Sauvignon lends flavors of blackberries, boysenberries and plum, which are enhanced by lovely spicy notes from the Syrah and Zinfandel, along with a slight toasty, vanilla character from oak aging. Easy to drink and enjoy, this wine is very much a crowd pleaser.
