In the glass, this Cab dominant blend from Lake County has a black asphalt center that bleeds out into electric purple edges with a translucent halo….
On the front of the nose I’m blasted with blackberry rhubarb pie before raspberries, cedar wood, and anise show up to join the party….
A drink has a cranberry and black cherry start that tornadoes into black pepper cracked on sweet cedar wood before a finish that I really want to keep going but instead just kinda stumbles off a ledge leaving me craving more ———–> meh…..
Alrighty folks…. Here’s $20ish red blend that certainly doesn’t suck but also kinda falls apart at the end ———-> Bottom line is that the nose and start to this sucker is worth every penny of what you’ll pay for it…. for a weeknight pop and pour, it’s a buy!
