The Wine: Monkey Jacket 2017
Perfumed and floral nose, white flowers, orange blossoms and a hint of rose. Fresh, crushed red fruits on the palate, with ripe, round fresh tannins, finishing clean and bright in the mouth.
A blend primarily composed of Valdiguié, Carignan, Tannat, and red field blend from the North Coast of California. This is an attempt to capture the vintage in a glass and show what California is exceptional at - making a high quality, engaging, wine for your table.
