Our wine tonight is the 2016 Crush from The Dreaming Tree. A semi-sweet red blend of Merlot, Zinfandel, Petit Sirah, and Tannat.
A nose bursting of red fruit, coffee, currant, violet, rose, and vanilla. Beautiful dark ruby color with long legs, bold, rich, and complex with a full compliment of tannins. Flavor notes on the tongue of blackberry jam, black cherry, and cranberry. Mid palate smooths to leather, oak, smoke, and cedar. Lingering to a finish of tobacco, black pepper, and spice.
Winery Escapade scoring on the American Wine Society twenty point scale.
Appearance: 3 Aroma: 5 Taste: 5 Aftertaste: 2.5 Impression: 2
