2018 Thelema Mountain Red
Blend: 44% Shiraz, 34% Grenache, 22% Petit Verdot
Tasting Notes: This medium bodied red blend is a perfect everyday drinking wine. Aromas of black fruit lead into a hint of spice. On the palate, it is soft and juicy with flavors of mulberry and plum. The 18 months of oak aging attribute well-rounded tannins and a long, delicious finish.
