Profile 2013 Merryvale Vineyards

The 2013 Proprietary Red Blend Profile, their Bordeaux blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Petit Verdot and Cabernet Franc and usually meant to represent the flagship dry red of the winery, has a dense ruby/purple color, notes of wood char, spice box, blackberry and blueberry, this starts to kick up the level of tannin in this medium to full-bodied, long-term wine. This does require some patience, and 4-5 years is suggested. It should drink nicely for 20 or more years.
Rambunctious, delivering savory, underbrush-laced earth and blackberry flavors, unfolding to reveal currant, licorice and floral scents. The tannins emerge on the grippy, grainy aftertaste. Cabernet Sauvignon, Petit Verdot and Cabernet Franc.?
