Jeb Dunnuck 97 Points: “The 2019 Red Wine Sugarloaf Mountain Vineyard is cut from the same cloth as the 2018 and has a rich, full-bodied, nicely layered style revealing big, chocolatey fruits as well as notes of scorched earth and graphite.”
Winemaker Notes: “On the palate, you will taste blackberry, boysenberry, and Santa Rosa plum along with cedar and rich mocha notes. The textures are refined and voluptuous, guiding your tastebuds to a focal point of fruit. This blend is both captivating and bold carrying itself with graceful confidence.“
Tasting Notes: From the rocky exposed face of Sugarloaf Mountain, the 2019 Sugarloaf Mountain Bordeaux blend has an intense purple hue. On the nose, you are greeted by cocoa, black stone fruits, and a whiff of roses. The wine is full in body with lush and rich black stone fruits dominating the chorus. Mouthwatering acidity carries the density of this wine, which is lush, yet velvety and multi-layered with power and grace energy leading to a long and fragrant finish. While delicious upon release, this wine possesses a mystically restrained core that will reveal itself opulently over decades.
