90 Pts, Wine Enthusiast October 2016
Our 2014 B Side Red Wine Blend is deeply structured with a core of herbaceousness and firm tannins. Aromas lift out of the glass with power – mocha, cigar box, cherry brandy and red currant play prominently in the nose. Subtle notes of marjoram, sage and herbs de provence add complexity. The flavors in this Red Blend grab your attention – black currant, black plum and molasses are rich on the palate with nuances of caramel, sandalwood and chargrilled bread. Combining understated power and finesse, dried fruit flavors and the long, expressive finish will make you grab the bottle for another glass. We recommend pairing this wine with a bone-in steak, fettucine crabonara or herb-crusted chicken with oven roasted Brussel sprouts.
