Tasting Notes

A beautiful ruby color in the glass with aromas of black plum, red currant, and red apple skin. The 2020 Matthews Horse Heaven Hills Cuvée elicits flavors of pomegranate, espresso, Bing cherry, bilberry and sassafras with fresh acidity, medium body and chalky tannins. The long, layered finish shows textural tannins, earth and roasted red pepper.
