Red Wine by Trentadue from Sonoma County, California. This is a fine example of the ability of this classic Bordeaux variety to make solid, tasty and age-worthy wines. The main aromas and flavors are of dark cherries, plums, a bit of black licorice and herbs. The new oak contributes a touch of vanilla, brown sugar, cocoa dust and slight toast. On the mouth the wine is almost heavy but the acidity and tannins are balanced for such a young wine.
