Springlot – Delaplane Cellars

Our wine tonight is the 2015 Springlot from Delaplane Cellars in Delaplane Virginia.

Red blend of 40% Cabernet Sauvignon, 40% Cabernet Franc, and 20% Merlot.

Beautiful inky color with purplish rim.

Nose of oak, leather, cedar, dark fruit, and cocoa.

Full bodied.

Smooth on the palate, dry, and fruity with flavor notes of maraschino cherries, blackberries, red plums, black currants, and pomegranates, with a lingering finish of oak, leather, black licorice, and vanilla.

13% ABV

$52.00 a bottle.

Decant for 60 minutes.

Drinking superb now.
