The Arsonist Red in Alaska

by: Dave Kempa

mcvittieAnother great review from Mike McVittie up in Alaska! In full:

Some people just have to go against the grain. You know who you are. Like, people who have no turkey on Thanksgiving, for example. Well, if you’re one of those, I have a spectacular red blend that’s right up your alley. Called the Arsonist, it’s super dark, thick and sappy, with just a touch of herb and black pepper. The secret here is the Arsonist’s 52 percent Petit Verdot content, a massively bold red that in conjunction with equal amounts of Cabernet and Merlot makes a sinfully rich Cabernet-style wine.
