This Russian River Valley Wine has a heavy garnet color that you can see on the swirl with a dark fruit bouquet which lies under a layer of cedar or menthol.
It is full bodied and hyper tannic, bone drying, suck the saliva out of your mouth dry, tight and closed.
With breathing this wine is masculine and bold with very ripe blackberry plum with dried cherries with a tang! It is steely and dry as dust with toast notes. This wine is a WWA wrestler’s kind of wine and needs a food pairing that is up to the challenge. Not a wussy wine to say the least. I received it for my birthday from my aging hunting partner who is a deer’s best friend...I have a reference price of $18. If you’re in the right mood, raise a glass!
