In the glass, this Santa Ynez Merlot/Cab Franc blend has a black center with pink edges and a translucent halo….
When I stick my nose in the glass, I get a sucker punch of blueberries with a fist-full of dried fruit and some dark chocolate covered strawberries ————> The nose on this lil number kinda reminds me of an Amarone with that dried fruit…. And I’m —–> INTO IT!
My first sip has a black cherry start that leads to dried raspberries and sweet oak…. The mid-palate is a lil dusty with more of the cocoa and blueberries that I got on the nose before bright cranberries give my tongue a pop…. The finish is silky-smooth with red fruit and a black pepper kick….
Hey guys, here’s another one from CrossHatch Winery out of Santa Ynez… You may be flashing back to an earlier review I put out on these guys and recall how hard I gushed over the wine…. Welllllllll ——-> they are 2 for 2 y’all!!!
