I'm not gonna miss those school colors

According to the Technical Notes on the website:Being that I'm not a wine aficionado, you're not going to get from me 3 paragraphs about the color, the wine's opacity, acidity, balance, finish, etc. (I got all that technical jargon when I googled 'Wine tasting how to'.) That's why I went to their website to get the technicals on this wine from their Virtual Tasting Room. I know some of you may know a thing or two more than I do and can appreciate this information. I'm not going to pretend to know everything about wine. I don't.
"The Druid’s Fluid was first made in the 2000 vintage on accident due to a nitrogen deficiency in the soils that we had no way of predicting. Bottled upon the request of everyone who tasted our “mistake”, we have increased the production on each succeeding vintage yet it still sells out every year. A wine made for the people.
The Grape Variety/Origination is: 55% Merlot, 22% Cabernet Sauvignon, 15% Zinfandel, 7%
Syrah, 1% Other (Tempranillo, Tannat)- Applegate Valley
Winemakers Comments: Possibly the best Druid's Fluid released to date. Tons of fruit,
blackberry, currant, spice, plum, with a nice level of oak on the nose. The wine is dangerously easy to drink, ultra-smooth, and delectable. Notes of chocolate mousse, raspberry, and mincemeat leap generously from the glass. Flavors are of cranberry and cassis.
Tasting Comments: Bright, red/black hue. Aromatics of fresh bing cherry. The slight sweetness is integrated well with alcohol and acid. The traditional sweetness plays on the finish but is balanced by a definite tartness reminiscent of ripe pomegranate.
Druid's Fluid is 13.50% alcohol.
Total Acidity (g/L): 6.7.
The wine is aged for 7 months."
