Casino Mine Ranch Marcel 2016
|Region||California, Central Valley, Shenandoah Valley|
|Brand||Casino Mine Ranch|
The 2016 Marcel, is a blend of 80% Tempranillo and 20% Teroldego. The grapes were harvested at optimum ripeness, underwent a long maceration on the skins and spent 18 months in new French casks. The result is a deep, ruby-hued wine that permeates the glass emanating notes of bramble fruits, earth and hints of grilled meats over an open wood fire. The palate is marked by incredible tension balanced with lushness that leaves you reaching for the next sip. A myriad of flavors from Chinese five spice, cigar box, salted black licorice, Morello cherries, olallieberry preserves, panforte and lomo- a full-bodied wine with a long finish.
