Carter Hossfield Colesium Red Blend
California’s Best Merlot? I certainly think so! -Aaron Zwicker
2018 Carter Hossfield Colesium Red Blend....$89.99
A Merlot-dominated blend, the 2018 Cabernet Sauvignon Hossfeld Coliseum offers a gorgeous, Vieux Chateau Certain-like sexiness in its blackcurrant and macerated black cherry fruit as well as notes of chocolate, smoke tobacco, cigar, and spice. This full-bodied beauty has no hard edges, a beautiful blend of richness and freshness, sweet tannins, and a great finish. It’s a beautiful, powerful wine that stays light and graceful. Drink it over the coming 15 years or more.
