Redmetal Vineyards Basket Press Bridge Pa Triangle Merlot/Cabernet Franc (2019)

The powerful, sturdy 2019 vintage (5*) is deeply coloured. Already highly approachable, it is mouthfilling, with rich, youthful blackcurrant, red berry, plum and spice flavours, ripe and smooth, nutty oak adding complexity, and good backbone. Drink now or cellar.
