This blend of 80% Merlot and 20% Cabernet Sauvignon was made as a dedication to the bravery of our men and women in the military. It is a joint project of Ray Coursen, a Vietnam veteran, and David Grega, a veteran of Iraq. This is a delicious, fruit-driven wine with red and black fruits, some spice, medium to full body, easygoing tannins, and a fleshy mouthfeel and finish. Drink it over the next 7-8 years.

Wine EnthusiastLed by 67% Merlot, this also includes 19% Zinfandel, 8% Petit Verdot and 6% Cabernet Franc. Approachable and thickly concentrated, it offers a generous helping of fruity blackberry and cherry with toasted oak.
