Awesome Blend: Chez Ray, StarFire and Starry Night

This is an awesome red blend:
Chez Ray Hopland Cabernet Sauvignon, 2006, Mendicino County, CA
StarFire Zinfandel, 2006, Lodi, CA (commercial)
Starry Night Wilderotter Vineyard Zinfandel, 2003, Amador County, CA (commercial)

Review notes: In the glass, medium/light red, hues of brick at the edge. Aromas are old, leathery and fall leaves. On the palate, explodes with sweet and savory fruit, lifted with just a hint of acids and solid fine tannins. Soft, lingering finish, like watching a sunset from a soft, old leather chair.
