Monte Rio Rubired California 2018
Only 2 left
Rubired is the second most planted black grape in California behind Cabernet Sauvignon, but only a fraction goes into making wine. N.Y. Somm Patrick Capiello and Pax Mahle think this is a gross oversight and have brought us this adventurous inky red wine. The whole cluster fermentation gives the wine woodsy, tobacco notes that support the luscious dark plum and blackberry fruit with colors so dense they stain the glass long after the wine has been consumed.
