The Culprit is one of our best selling red blends. It’s Big, Bold, and Intense. Not a wine for the shy. You’ll find an array of flavors harmonized and layered with notes of spice, anise, blueberries, cedar, wild cherries, black currant and licorice. Its well structured with sweet tannins and a satisfying finish displaying hints of crushed rock and graphite. A lot of wine for the money. One would expect to pay at least double for this quality.
