100% Carménère 2013, Spofford Station, Seven Hills, and Phinny Hill Vineyards
Miss the 2012? The ’13 is a worthy successor with its delectable mash of black cherry, baking spices, chocolate, and that distinctive earthy jalapeño pepper on the nose. The palate gives up flavors of black currant, smoked paprika, bitter cocoa, and notes of clove that lead to a long finish of dark spicy chocolate infused with fading black cherry. Yep. Fabulous.
