Extra Info:

The legends of the Petit Verdot (25%), (the original left bank Bordeaux) with its natural acidity and spicy flavors, it forms a basis for a wine that demands pairings with interesting and creative menus.  Traditionally blended with other of the important Bordeaux wines, none more important than the traditional Cabernet Franc (25%), another dark skinned fruit that just adores being blended with other Bordeaux wines.  This addition to Dark & Dreamy gives that filling the mouth with a flavor and body of a great Cab.  More Bordeaux...yes, Merlot (25%)  in here.   This Bordeaux wine blended traditionally with other's to soften and smooth giving a luxurious  feeling and experience,  it's a perfect partner to the other two Bordeaux's living in this wine.  Who doesn't like the experience of a great Merlot and in this case it lives with its companions in complete harmony.  What more could be wanted?  Sangiovese (25%), yes.  Another big bright wine given to this blend.  It is big but not heavy.  An unusual blend, perhaps but Turiya makes wines that provide a notable taste experience with respect to tradition yet willing to set its own tradition.  All fruit sourced from the Central California Coast.
