Topper's Mountain Bricolage Rouge New England 2014


Topper’s Mountain’s Bricolage Rouge is an unorthodox blend of tempranillo, nebbiolo, tannat and shiraz.  Ruby in colour, its aroma reminds of red fruits, smoke and minerals. The palate is medium bodied, with some chalky tannin and good length, and flavours reminding of red fruit, with a savoury, almost Italianate sour cherry aspect.  The winemaker sure can blend, as these are not obvious blending partners.  This is an enjoyable and very good wine that is ready to drink now.  Rating: Good to Very Good. Abv: 13.5%. Price: $30. Source: Sample.
