Black Star Farms 2012 Leorie Vineyard Merlot-Cabernet Franc (Old Mission Peninsula)

After a bit of searching through a blanket of coffee and cocoa, fresh red currant and plum show on the nose. A solid concentration of crunchy red and black berries meets an enlivened vein of pencil lead, with pleasantly bitter cocoa lingering on the finish. There's a nice balance of plushness, medium-grained tannin and persistent acidity, making this wine easily enjoyable now. Alexander Peartree
