2018 Iron + Sand Paso Robles Cabernet Sauvignon...$22.99
Dense purple in color, this wine opens with aromas of dark cherries, blackberry preserves and a dusting of cocoa powder and clove. On the entry, ripe, dark fruit flavors hit the palate before rounding out to earthy, rich chocolate covered cherries complemented by lively acidity and fine tannins that lifts the wine and suggests a long life. The finish is long, supple, and mouthwatering.
Deep violet. Dark berries, cherry pit and a hint of licorice on the spice-accented nose. Chewy and energetic on the palate, offering bitter cherry, cassis and cracked pepper flavors and a touch of mintiness. Finishes long and taut, with building spiciness and gently chewy tannins that come in slowly.
