A Municipality in France

Dense purple ruby with no edge and staining.  Copious forward fruit, peanut-shell dusty and wet carbon knife-blade blast out at you unapologetically floral.  Lilies left on the table maybe a day too long, but bright and alive.  A beautiful new-world take on mid-level Côte-Rôtie.  This is Bien Nacido fruit made in screw-top, easy-to-digest packaging and lovely price-points by Potek Wines.  In the mouth, full cherry, leather and even salty.  Thin and lovely with gorgeous acidity and even-keeled tannins.  Highly recommended.
