2016 Markus Wine Co. blue Red Blend
Very different than the 2015, as Markus has shifted the focus from Zinfandel to Petit Verdot, rounding-out the blend with fellow Bordeaux varieties Cabernet Sauvignon and Malbec. The result is bright and fresh red fruits with flavors of raspberry sorbet and rose petals along with tart red plum and sour cherry. Age-able, gripping tannins lend a balancing medium body with a long-lasting finish.
