2014 Moraga Red

The aroma of the 2014 Moraga Red nearly jumps out of the glass. Signature notes of tobacco, briar, and tar balance the predominant cassis in the nose. This wine is dense and well-built, but lively and energetic. Tannins are very firm, yet very fine, smooth, and supple. Flavors of black cherry meld with blueberry, sweet saddle leather, and pipe tobacco. The tannins build to a very persistent finish.
