Blend: 83% Merlot and 17% Cabernet Sauvignon
Nose: Wild game, plums, road-tar bubble, tobacco, french-roast coffee, blackberries, black-cherries, black raspberries – anything black – yeah, it’s all here.
Taste: Awesome fresh road-tar taste which is engulfed with dark plum flavors – I pick up the fresh road-kill game on the mid-palate and sweaty arm-pit which follows the onslaught of dark fruits. The finish has some nice dark chocolate and coffee elements which hang out on the palate like a bunch of college-kids after hours at an In-n-Out burger stand. I’m feeling it, loving it and would easily snatch up more of this wine in a heartbeat. Excellent balance of fruit, tannin structure and oak. White and black pepper.
