Monterrey County, CA; 14.5% ABV
$3 for 375ml at the Richmond, CA, store in early October. Gone now.
I decanted this wine off some sediment for about a half hour of so before I tasted it. The wine tasted of ripe, dark red cherry and a little dark blueberry, with a slightly blackened character, dry woody oak, and slightly sharp acid on the finish. As the evening went on, the flavors darkened to emphasize the blueberry, almost blackberry, and the roasted or grilled character, still with the dark red dried cherry as the textured base. Probably unsurprisingly, none of this half bottle survived to the next day. If you find some or still have any, drink it up soon.
