2014 Rockwood Rouge
Bright garnet ruby fades out to a clear rim with medium concentration and no tear staining. Distinctly leafy nose with blackberry, raspberry and tart red cherry. Violets, lavender, dried rose petal, and lilac complement tar and button mushroom earth.
The flavors are Fruit forward, clear, and bright. While this is a full-bodied, complex, substantial wine, the backbone of acidity and minerality keep it lithe and pretty.
Sommelier’s Notes: Enjoy with grilled pork or lamb chops with olive oil and Herbs de Provence.
