Turley Bechthold Vineyard Cinsault 2019
Stunningly ruby-colored and brilliant yet translucent, almost jewel-like, in the glass. Lifted aromatics of spiced cherry, pomegranate, peach, and light nougat. Fresh, lip-smacking medium-plus acidity and lush, silky fruit glide along the structured yet velvety palate. The tannins are reminiscent of Burgundy, with just a touch of grip and a long finish. The 2019 Cinsault has the unique depth and complexity that can only be found in a wine from truly ancient vines. Excellent as an aperitif alongside charcuterie, or for that person who insists on drinking red wine with their fish!
