Region California, Central Coast, Santa Barbara
Brand Margerum
Alcohol/vol 14.4%
Dark opaque, black and velvety. Intense concentrated fruit complemented with a host of graphite, crushed rock, sage and lavender notes woven through a core of dark red and purplish hued stone fruits. Secondary notes of vanilla bean, plum pit and a hint of coffee sweeten the dark structure. Resolved tannins and persistent fine, smooth tannins; rounded, lively, and dense. Flavors of dark red fruit, dry cocoa and peppercorn; brighter notes of ripe strawberry and sarsaparilla elongate the finish. Undertones of fresh leather and green olive pit combine in an intricate weave of savory and spice.

Bright aromas of candied blackberry meet with dewy herbs on the nose of this multiple vineyard blend by Doug Margerum. The palate combines black-currant juice with licorice, cracked black pepper and fresh acidity.

Trim and focused, with blueberry, smoked meat and crushed stone accents that persist toward tight tannins. Best after 2019.
