2015 Samantha's Vineyard
The first thing you notice is the balance. The fruit components are beautifully integrated with the savory aspects of the wine. Cherry, black raspberry and black currants fill out the body, and the violet, black olive, sage and salted pork give the wine the structure. Fruit, structure, and aromatics all harmonize perfectly, making this a superb food wine, for all of the chefs out there- the many layers of flavor compliment and highlight almost any dish. All of this flavor in a medium bodied wine at 13.5% alcohol.
