2018 Gundlach Bundschu Mountain Cuvée Red Sonoma County
Winemaker Notes: Crafted to satisfy the contemplative connoisseur, yet approachable for the casual imbiber, and, affordable for all the above. Refreshing aromas of black cherries and blackberries lifted by vanilla and warm baking spices lead into a light-to-medium bodied palate of more dark fruit, savory cocoa and earth, while dusty tannins and mouth-watering acidity leave a lingering freshness. As with previous vintages, this wine is ready to pair with a myriad of cuisines and occasions, or enjoy on its own, knowing it will leave you clamoring for more.
Blend: 77% Merlot, 13% Cabernet Sauvignon, 4% Petit Verdot, 3% Malbec, 3% Cabernet Franc
Wine Enthusiast - "This is an impressive blend, leading with 81% Merlot and 13% Cabernet Sauvignon, with smaller amounts of Petit Verdot and Syrah. Big, bold and brawny, it broods in dark fruit, toasted oak and accents of cedar, cigar and dried herb, with ample structure, texture and length."
