Three Saints Santa Barbara 2007 Steak House Red Wine, $16.99 (bought at Lucias Bodega), 88 points, is dark ruby in color with some purple tints and a clear rim.
The aroma is richly aromatic with cooking spice, cedar, cherry, and coffee.
The medium-plus body is quite smooth on fair acidity and tannin, nothing over-whelming, and carries flavors of cherry, licorice, and violets (too floral).
A floral finish is curbed by some heat (14.7% alcohol) and spice.
As best I can tell, the varietals are Cabernet Sauvignon , Syrah, Merlot, Malbec, and Cabernet Franc.
