Chronology California Red Wine 2018
The 2018 Chronology Red Wine is dark plum in your glass. The Rhone and Bordeaux varietals are masterfully blended into an enticing array of flavors and aromas. You are greeted with notes of black mission fig, dark chocolate, and blackberry with a hint of bramble on the nose. From the first sip, you find notes of delicious dark fruits, cacao, a hint of cigar box and spice. The Chronology coats your palate in a rich but soft feel, with a velvety aspect that spreads and lingers.
The 2018 Chronology Red is a blend of predominately Petite Sirah with Grenache, Cabernet Sauvignon, Malbec, Cabernet Franc, Merlot, Mission, Syrah and Mourvèdre. Medium to deep garnet-purple in color, it slowly unfurls to reveal scents of crushed red and black plums, boysenberries and Black Forest cake with hints of Sichuan pepper, sandalwood, iron ore and black truffles. The medium to full-bodied palate has bags of freshness and energy, supported by firm yet plush, incredibly well-tamed tannins and loads of black fruit and exotic spice layers, finishing long and peppery. This is truly an exercise in masterful blending-delicious!
