High marks for this Reserve line from Blackstone. The Merlot was good, as was the Pinot - and now this.
Musty, dusty smelling, but really elegant looking. In the mouth, though, WOW - right away you know this wine means business. A grown-ups wine. Hot, hot, hot attack. Tight and structured. Really elegant aromatics as they unwind. Bracing tannins, medium bodied, and loads of light-footed character. Bravo! Tasted blind and guessed to be $20. Actually closer to $17-18.
