Aridus Wine Company Graciano 2018, Arizona

Inky in color with a short purplish rim.

Strong nose of black currants, black plums, cherries, earth, light oak, vanilla, licorice, Indian spices, turmeric, curcumin, chocolates, pencil lead and black pepper.

Medium plus in body with medium plus acidity and fat legs.

Dry on the palate with sour cherries, red currants, bitter chocolates, light wood, spices, dark coffee, vegetables, herbs, peppercorn and alcohol.

Short finish with fine tannins and tangy raspberries.

This is a very interesting red wine from Arizona. Still young and a little hot, but I enjoyed the fruity nose.

Good right out of the bottle and feels like a bolder Southern Italy red.

A good food wine that I paired with cheeses and meats. Will pair nicely with pizza.

15.3% alcohol by volume.

87 Points.

$37.
