2017 Joullian Retro Rouge
Deep ruby color that continues all the way to the edges. Fresh plums, cola and rhubarb pop on the nose. It jumps back and forth between its Bordeaux and Zinfandel base. Soft and velvety at first, then a burst of dried fruit, leather and bright acidity through the finish. Somewhat waxy, lingering flavors of white pepper spice and black cherry.
30% Zinfandel, 51% Merlot, 14% Cabernet Sauvignon, 1% Cab Franc, 3% Muscat Hamburg. 1% Syrah.
