Baker & Brain Pendulum Red Blend 2013
The wine blasts from the glass initially showing rich notes of fresh currant and jammy fresh blue fruit. Classic oak notes indicative of fine Rhone wines present themselves as cedar and baked pie crust. The herbal tones are well integrated and akin to Thanksgiving turkey and stuffing. Tobacco leaf and humidor nuances round out a complex nose. Powerful aromas include herbs, black plums and black cherries, fennel and tobacco. The texture in the mouth is dense, filling yet balanced, showing ultra-soft tannins and good acidity. The wine finishes long, with lingering notes of toasty French oak and dark, ripe fruit. We love the wines of Chateauneuf du Pape and are thrilled at how our 2013 Pendulum blend reminds us of the best we've had from the region.
