2016 Highway 12 Sonoma Red Blend
A fruity, leathery nose offers a glimpse into what unfolds on the palate. Hefty, bright notes of ripe plum, currant jelly and a tinge of sweet tobacco fill the senses with the first sip. As this breathes, it morphed into something exceptionally smooth and round, a result of the introduction of soft tannins and lightly burnt toffee oak. The fig jam finish lingers but just long enough to go in for another sip. Enjoy this with a hearty Tikka Masala or Thai Red Coconut Curry. Any spicy creamy tomato sauces are heaven with this wine.
