Mount Bullion Vineyards Casto Oaks Man’s Best Blend 2015, Sierra Foothills, California

This is a delicious red blend from Sierra Foothills in california.

Dark ruby in color with a wide reddish rim.

Full bodied with medium acidity.

Showing black fruits with tobacco, vanilla, licorice, herbs, cedar, light vegetables, earth, black pepper, pencil lead and chocolates.

Long finish with fine grained tannins and tangy raspberries.

This 7 year old is drinking very nicely now. Nicely balanced with nice complexity and mouthfeel.

Peaking now, and will continue to drink nicely in the next few years. I’ve had it a year ago, and it is drinking even better now.

Good right out of the bottle, and better after 45 minutes of airtime.

Really enjoyed the nose, and a great value too.

A blend of 37% Syrah, 38% Cabernet Sauvignon and 25% Merlot. Aged for 19 months in American oak barrels (30% new). A small production of only 7 barrels.

15% alcohol by volume.

93 points.
