Bonterra "The McNab" Red Blend 2019
This Bordeaux-style blend is centered on Cabernet Sauvignon, with Petite Sirah lending additional depth and nuance. The wine has a brilliant, deep red hue and opens with an appealing chorus of blackcurrant, fig, and dark chocolate aromas followed by notions of graphite on the nose. Firm though fine-grained tannins frame a generous mid-palate that leads to energetic flavors of cassis, toast, Portobello, and subtle minerality. Suggestions of tobacco and anise harmonize on a lingering finish.
