2018 Gundlach Bundschu Mountain Cuvee Sonoma
Gundlach Bundschu: 161 year old California Winery. Started before the Civil War.
From the winery:
Crafted to satisfy the contemplative connoisseur, yet approachable for the casual imbiber, and, affordable for all the above. Refreshing aromas of black cherries and blackberries lifted by vanilla and warm baking spices lead into a light-to-medium bodied palate of more dark fruit, savory cocoa and earth, while dusty tannins and mouth-watering acidity leave a lingering freshness.
2018 had incredibly moderate and consistent day time temperatures pushing this growing season until the 1st week of November. The latest we have finished picking in almost a decade. These perfect conditions resulted in impeccable fruit quality across all varietals. Flavor and phenolic ripeness was achieved at lower sugar levels. This balance has created some of the most elegant and age worthy wines produced in recent memory. Yields were also exceptional, which means great wine and lots of it. Truly a goldilocks type vintage, with all aspects (climate, hangtime, and yields) being just right.
As with previous vintages, this wine is ready to pair with a myriad of cuisines and occasions, or enjoy on its own, knowing it will leave you clamoring for more.
