Chronology Red Wine 2015

California, United StatesThe 2015 Chronology Red Wine mixes traditional Bordeaux grapes with Rhône varietals, ‘kissed’ as the winery says, by Angelica (Mission grape). The colour is deep, the nose plummy with red fruits and a hint of brown spice. The attack is soft and round, as expected, and while ripe, it’s a little drier than the norm of these blends that come in super-heavy bottles, often a signal of sugar bombs. Expect ripe flavours of black fruit and chocolate with brown spices and a touch of tea tannins. A steak and ribs wine, and the richer and rarer the better.Tasted: 04 October 2018Tasted by: Anthony GismondiPrices: BC 59.99 private wine stores Producer: Secret IndulgenceDistributors: Pacific Wine & Spirits Inc.
