CARTER PROPRIETARY RED "HOSSFELD COLISEUM", HOSSFELD VINEYARD, NAPA VALLEY 2015
Very deep purple-black in color, the 2015 Hossfeld Coliseum Proprietary Red (composed of 80% Merlot and 20% Cabernet Sauvignon) leaps from the glass with plum preserves, crème de cassis and dark chocolate notes plus hints of menthol, black cherry preserves and Indian spices. Full-bodied, soft, rich and sexy, this makes for a gorgeous taste of the vintage to enjoy right now, while you're waiting for its big brothers to come 'round.
NVWE Notes: This darkly rich Merlot-Cab blend is packed with distinctive fruit and sweet-savory delights. The nose layers blueberry compote, dark cherry, black raspberry, Asian plum sauce and black fig aromas upon a background of date sugar, coffee bean, vanilla, clove, black tea, black licorice and peppercorn. Brandied cherry, blueberry pie, black raspberry, black fig, black licorice, molasses, plum sauce, date sugar, cedar, sandalwood and bay leaf flavors all roll-forth in a rich wave on the palate. Plush in texture, with heady richness and plenty of weight, the finish lingers well and pushes the wine’s tannins rearward nicely. It should improve for four years and will prove a great companion to Prime Rib already.
