Dry Creek Vineyard The Mariner Red Blend 2017
At first swirl, the wine displays aromas of black currant, black cherry and spiced plum. Several more minutes reveal hints of allspice, nutmeg, cocoa powder and dried flowers. The palate has dark berry flavors along with earthy complexity and savory notes. It finishes with notes of fine leather, dried herbs and toasty cedar. Good acidity will help this wine to age beautifully for years to come.
Blend: 69% Cabernet Sauvignon, 15% Merlot, 6% Cabernet Franc, 5% Malbec,5% Petit Verdot
"This wine exhibits a beautiful range of ripe fruit, oak, and spicy aromas and flavors. Enjoy it with oven-baked pork tenderloin." -93pts, Wilfred Wong
