Intense yet supple, weaving together a complex mix of mocha, fresh earth, cedar, dried berry and black cherry. The tannins clamp down on the finish, giving the flavors traction. Cabernet Sauvignon, Petit Verdot, Merlot and Syrah.

The 2009 Red Blend The Changeup is a rich wine loaded with fruit, but less personality and depth than the best wines in this lineup. Layers of dark fruit, grilled herbs, rose petals, flowers and mint all flesh out on the intense finish. The Changeup is 50% Cabernet Sauvignon, 20% Petit Verdot, 20% Merlot and 10% Syrah.
