The 2018 T-Rex is styled after the Super Tuscans, the great wine blends of Tuscany.
Sangiovese has a strawberry flavor that focuses on the center of your palate. Malbec gives the blend a touch of Blackberries and fills in the bottom of the taste profile. Syrah adds an earthy foundation and Zinfandel accentuates the mid-palate as it expands like a Super Nova. Merlot adds nose and Cabernet Sauvignon gives the blend a long finish and structure. Cabernet Franc adds a dark chocolate note to the top of your palate.
