This spectacular effort from Morgado Cellars impresses right off the bat with seductive aromas of red currants and dark cherries dusted with sweet spices and brown sugar. The palate reveals the graphite and dried sage hiding under all that plush, delicious fruit. A full-bodied vixen with outstanding depth and concentration, this is one red blend you’ll want to introduce to all of your friends.
The 2016 Sugarloaf Mountain Red Wine checks in as a blend of 65% Cabernet Franc and 35% Merlot that was brought up in new French oak. This blockbuster styled effort doesn't pull any punches on its decadent black fruits, chocolate, spicy oak, and crushed violets. This beauty has some serious depth and density, terrific purity, and a great finish.
