Flegenheimer Brothers Reserve Red 2012
Wine AdvocateA blend of Shiraz and Petite Sirah, the very deep purple-black colored 2012 Reserve Red Wine exudes aromas of warm blackberries and crushed black plums with hints of mulberries, black pepper, tree bark and charcoal. Very big and full-bodied, it fills the palate with warm berry preserves flavors and just a touch of pepper that is offset by chewy tannins and up-lifting acidity. It finishes just a little hot.
VinousInky purple. Sweet, expansive aromas of cassis, blackberry, bitter chocolate and musky flowers. Lush, round and broad, offering rich black and blue fruit flavors that pick up a spicy character with air. Round, ample and fleshy wine with strong finishing punch, good fruity persistence and supple, slowly building tannins.
