2017 The Paring Red California USA
Utterly fascinating nose mixing lifted black fruit, savory green herbs and dark notes of grilled bread, espresso and anise. Fills the palate with bright red fruit and black plum. A constant play between sweet and savory. Gentle and dusty tannins lead the way into an incredibly long and precise finish. Mulberry sweetness and a wonderful tension between tannic structure and bright acidity. Balanced and refined, a study in elegance.
Blend: 50% Cabernet Sauvignon, 20%, Merlot, 20% Cabernet Franc, 10% Petit Verdot
Rated 90 Points Jeb Dunnuck
The Bordeaux blend, the 2017 Red Wine is based on 50% Cabernet Sauvignon, 20% Cabernet Franc, 20% Merlot, and 10% Petit Verdot. Deeply colored, with notes of blackcurrants, tobacco, leafy herbs, and earth, it has medium-bodied depth and richness on the palate, ripe tannins, and a character-filled, balanced style that's ideal for drinking over the coming 5-7 years or so.
