Jeb Dunnuck Review
Spicy oak, bouquet garni, and both red and black fruits emerge from the 2016 Red Wine Blend, which hits the palate with medium bodied richness, a seamless texture, and fine tannins. It's a balanced, elegant red that has fine tannins and loads to love. It should also keep for over a decade. This 2016 is a blend of 51% Cabernet Sauvignon, 29% Merlot, and 20% Cabernet Franc brought up in 34% new French and American oak.
Wine Tasting Notes
Perfumed aromas of currants, plum skin, dried herbs and spice make way for more intense notes of smoked raspberry, dried strawberry and vanilla bean. The flavors are layered and concentrated, providing a seamless palate filled with deep cherry, black fruits, sage and baking spices. Delicious, sultry and complex, this wine's wonderful texture and silky tannins carry through to a long and lifted finish fitting for an age-worthy release.
