Mending Wall Mortar & Stone Red Blend, Napa Valley, California (750ml)
About the Icons
From the talented Thomas Rivers Brown, this expansive red is full-bodied, rich and satisfying. The blend is 70% 2019 Zinfandel from Atlas Peak and Mountain Peak, and 30% 2020 Petite Sirah from Palisades Vineyard. That means putting a vintage on the label was not an option, but honestly - who cares? When a wine is this delicious, it shouldn't matter.
Here are Thomas's notes ~ “This wine, expresses layers of concentrated fruit, and exotic spice notes, displaying a deep purple in color in the glass. A wave of aromatic notes suggests blackberry reduction, black, licorice, cinnamon, and spearmint. The palate has a satin like mouthfeel with finely integrated tannins. Vivid notes of bramble, savory meat, rosemary, and white pepper come to life and fan out across the elongated trajectory. This wine is approachable now, and will drink well for the next decade.“
