When swirled, the Rox-E reveals a rich ruby color. Aromas of ripe cherries, raspberries, and dark currents surpass subtler notes of spice and vanilla. The flavors of cherries and raspberries carry over to the pallet along with pomegranate and tart currents. The finish is bright with light lingering tannins.

There are many reasons why a winemaker may choose to blend different grape varietals together. Sometimes the winemaker is looking for specific color, bouquet, or flavor that can only be achieved by blending. Other times it is just good fun to blend two or more wines together and see what happens. In this blend, Cabernet Sauvignon, Zinfandel, Rubired and a special blend of wines from the 2020 harvest were used to achieve the perfect balance of flavors and tannins.
