2012 Matthiasson Napa Valley Red Blend (750ml)15 1 0 0
Burgers on the grill, so red wine is required, and this perfectly fits the bill. It complements the food rather than buries it. Black cherry and light cedar notes are supported by warm herbal tones and a dash of oak spice. Medium bodied, this does not weigh down the palate. It's got some tannin, all in balance with the fruit. Mid-term aging would likely increase complexity, but this is so fun to drink now, especially with those burgers!
