2019 Gundlach Bundschu Mountain Cuvee Sonoma Valley

$19.95

Delicious and dangerously easy-drinking, this Bordeaux-inspired blend is making some Sonoma Valley superfans. Mostly Merlot with a Cabernet Sauvignon back and a little Petit Verdot, Malbec and Cab Franc thrown in for good measure, this is approachable enough for the casual imbiber but crafted to satisfy the connoisseur. Black cherries and blackberries are lifted from the glass on wings of vanilla and warm baking spices, while the medium-bodied palate offers up more savory notes of cocoa and earth. Food friendly and fantastically priced, this is one to stock up on.

Based on Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon, the ruby/purple-hued 2019 Mountain Cuvee gives up a juicy, lively style reminiscent of Bordeaux with its red and black currants, tobacco leaf, and cedar aromas and flavors. With beautiful fruit, medium-bodied richness, and silky tannins, it's an undeniably delicious red to enjoy over the coming decade or more.
