DeLorimier Vineyards "Barrel Select Reserve" (2017)
Faceted like the deepest ruby color that the gem provides, this wine glows with vitality. The bright fruit on the nose gives off a very cherry aroma, with a forest floor and cedar undercurrents. The soft, luscious delivery appeals, with silky berries, gentle cigarbox, and mild eucalyptus all making a showing. The happy fruit shows off, while the round, gentle tannins entice even the neophyte Cabernet drinker into smiles.
