MATTHEWS WINERY Red Wine 'Blackboard' 2013

Fruit from this wine was sourced from a host of vineyards including Hedges, Bel'Villa, Red Mountain, Canyons, Stillwater Creek, Weinbau, Bacchus, Dionysus, Pepperbridge, XL, and Blue Mountain vineyards. The red blend was aged in 20% new French oak and 80% once and twice used French oak before bottling in March 2015. This wine begins with aromas of dill, red bell pepper, anise and spicebox. Three are medium weight flavors of red bell pepper, anise, red cherry and nutmeg. Lovely structure and texture to this solid bottling, as I can see this cellaring well.
