In the glass, this Bordeaux influenced blend from the Yorkville Highlands AVA has a black-midnight center with juicy purple edges surrounded by a dark pink halo….
A sniff shows wet oak and perfumed anise ———-> When I stick my nose in for a revisit I’m sucker punched by red raspberries and juicy black cherries….
A sip starts with dark fruit that spirals into bright acid capitalized by more of the raspberries I got on the nose ———-> The mid-palate is DELECTABLE with dark chocolate covered blueberries before this guy ends with a red licorice kick that sets the stage for a loooooooooong blackberry finish….
Here’s a blend by Yorkville Cellars using the 6 Noble red grapes of Bordeaux and MY-OH-MY is it good ——–> Each variety used in this wine is individually fermented and oak-aged before blending…. This guy is a labor of love and MAN DOES IT SHOW!!! 🎧🎧🎧 Listen to this wine with something that crosses genres like Judah & the Lion – Take It All Back
