2018 Lachini Vineyards La Contrada Red Blend
Cépage: Cabernet Sauvignon (75%); Merlot (25%)
Size: 750 ml
"Dark, fragrant and spectacularly rich, bursts on the nose with blackberry, plum and dark chocolate. Opens to reveal a more nuanced bouquet of a violets, cassis, currant, espresso and dark chocolate. The wine has broad, beautifully proportioned mouthfeel with juicy layers of dark fruits; yet maintaining great purity and structure. Deftly straddles the line of providing near term pleasure with toasty vanillin overtones; yet has nicely integrated fresh acids and silky tannins to reward patience."
