2010 B Side Red Blend

87The nose is filled with very dark aromas, blackberry, raisin, and powdered espresso, with a touch of tobacco leaf. The palate is even deeper, with blackberry jam, raisins, unsweetened chocolate and Cuban coffee. A few red fruit notes come out on the mid-palate, primary red cherry, with just a tiny acidic zing of cranberry. Raisins and chocolate linger on the mid-palate. Drink with beef tips with onions and peppers. Recommended. 87 points.
