Red Rooster Golden Egg 2018

Okanagan Valley, British Columbia, CanadaFrom the size, weight, and gold script on the bottle (impossible to photograph), you know this Golden Egg is an 'icon' bottling from Red Rooster. This blend of grenache, syrah, and mourvèdre has been aged for you, which has removed some of the grippy wood-hewn tannins, but sadly none of the smoke taint of 2018. Now softer on the palate, with smoked raspberry, bitter cherry, wet cedar, and peppery spicing through the warming finish, this would be best sopped up with a fall/winter root veg / smoked meat braise. I think the Diam10 cork is a bit aspirational.Tasted: 11 August 2023Tasted by: Prices:
