Strange label and a strange name for a wine.  The name turns out to be the elevation of the Jeff Runquist Winery in the Sierra Foothills of California which assembled this wine from various sections of California.  The wine is a 2011 vintage and from taste there has to be a fair amount of Petit Sirah in the mix.  It has that unique purple color from Petit Sirah and the in your face expression of fruit from that varietal also.  The taste is mostly blackberries and blueberries and sits on top of some moderate tannins and some acid.  Flavorful and nice and an early drinker.

2011 R 1448 California red table wine.  14.3% alcohol.  A gift.
