Best Buy! Affordable, approachable and widely available begins the discussion for this blend of Bordeaux varieties that leads with Cabernet Sauvignon (77%) from the Mercer family’s growing presence. Intense dark fruit aromas are led by black cherry and black currant, backed by brown sugar, black pepper, cocoa butter and a dusting of minerality so often found in Horse Heaven Hills wines. Inside is a rich entry of cherries, currants and plum in a lighter structure that comes with a luscious midpalate, sandy tannins and a rewarding finish.
