Tasting Notes: The Wolftrap is a perennially consistent best buy. This Rhone style varietal blend changes percentages vintage to vintage: in 2018 the breakdown is 82% Syrah, 16% Mourvedre, 2% Viognier. Never pretentious, it simply delivers standout quality every time. Eye: dark scarlet, semi-opaque with magenta pink rim. Nose: floral, black cherry, vanilla, Dr. Pepper. Palate: Youthful, fresh, ripe, lifted, with raspberry jam, plum, blackberry, red licorice. Good body, medium firm tannins, medium length finish. Now - 2023. Pairs with grilled, roasted meats, hard cheeses, casseroles. A great every day, any occasion quaffer.
Price: $15.99 750 ml
