Our wine tonight is the Loco Lulu from Parker-Binns Vineyard in the Tryon Foothills wine region of Western North Carolina.
Non-vintage on the bottle, though we believe this to be of the 2018 harvest.
Classic Bordeaux blend of estate grown Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot.
Dark purple in color with a bright garnet rim.
Nose expressive of fresh Bing cherries, think of a freshly baked hot out of the oven cherry pie, cocoa, soft florals, cinnamon, vanilla, and smoke.
We aerated for 60 minutes.
Medium bodied, medium tannins, with beautiful cascading long legs.
Flavor notes of black currants, blackberries, cherries, red plums, and spice, finishing toward more subtle notes of cedar, vanilla, black pepper, and pipe tobacco.
Winemaker: Justin Taylor
