Wine of the Week - Dascomb 2005 Riserva Red


A blend of cabernet sauvignon and sangiovese, this wine if full of rich, complex flavors. You taste something new with every sip. I love it!

On the nose, it's mostly black cherry.  But also some blueberry and a bed of black pepper.

Rich and silky on the tongue, this bold-flavored wine is smokey and leathery overall.  There's some cherry taste, as well as some greenery... maybe a little spinachy, but I might not commit to that.  The point is, as noted above, this wine is very complex and has surprises for you with every sip.  I highly recommend it.

14.6% alcohol
