Bellingham The Homestead Red Blend 2017

Bellingham The Homestead Red Blend 2017

Melange of Red and black fruit with rich red cherry, blueberry, and blackcurrant, supported by well-judged oak that leads to a classic tobacco spiciness, dark chocolate and liquorice. The wine has good intensity and structure and a rounded palate that is perfectly balanced. The tannins are soft and juicy making the wine approachable and generous now while the silky finish of lingering dark berry fruits will have you coming back for more.
