2018 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 has aged, it's softened 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 lovely, deeply satisfying wine. Enjoy this with chili colorado or classic chicken cacciatore.
