Breaker Breaker One-Nine Come In

Dark grainy garnet, some sed.  Simple nose, nice classic Sonoma soft and round, bright cherry and tropical lased with a bit of spice.  Pretty sure this is Cartlidge and Brown.  It’a a big, tank-negociant in American Canyon turning out plonk for somewhere… I don’t know where really.  Never see it in CA.  Bought a bunch of these on close-out several years ago and they certainly give a satisfactory bang-for-the-buck.  Not smelling of much age at all, possibly a touch of raisin, but overall hardly any noticeable polish.  In the mouth, simple and round, with some briar and acid bulking things up.  Med tannins.
