Wine Review: This pitch black colored big boy blend from Gundlach Bundschu is very good. It opens with a fragrant blackberry bouquet with hints of black raspberry and cherry-cola. On the palate, this wine is full bodied, balanced, juicy and fruit forward. The flavor profile is a mineral influenced blackberry with notes of oak and black olive. The finish is dry and fruit flavors and dusty tannins build up and stick around for quite some time. This wine would be a very good glass pour option at your bistro. I would pair it with a juicy mushroom and Swiss burger or grilled steak tips. Enjoy - Ken

Winemaker Notes: Mountain Cuvee is a modern California Bordeaux blend that pays homage to our Sonoma roots as a refreshingly easy-drinking wine bursting with character. Loaded with blackberry, dark plum, and black raspberry mingled with clove, tea, and spices, this seriously crafted yet surprisingly approachable. This medium-bodied red offers a full mouthfeel, driven by dark cherry fruit, creamy cocoa, and vanilla framed by smooth tannins and a long, rich finish. This fresh, layered, and quaffable wine is intended to be enjoyed within five years of vintage.
