2017 Highway 12 Sonoma Red Blend
A fruity, leathery nose offers a glimpse into what unfolds on the palate. Hefty, bright notes of ripe blackberry, currant jelly and a tinge of sweet tobacco fill the senses with the first sip. As this breathes, it softens into something exceptionally smooth and round, a result of the introduction of soft tannins and lightly burnt toffee oak. The fig jam finish lingers. A big, beautiful wine. Enjoy this with a marbled ribeye with blue cheese butter or a grilled coffee rubbed pork loin with a plum and marsala reduction.
