La Chiripada 2013 Winemaker's Select Red (New Mexico)

There is an initial impression of barnyard aromas on the nose of this blend of 40% Aglianico, 40% Cabernet Sauvignon and 20% Dolcetto. Brandied cherry, raspberry, and cedar are coaxed from the glass after aggressive swirling. The palate opens up with flavors of black cherry, plum and raspberry hovering over bitter oak and black pepper. Intense tannic grip shrivels the mouthfeel, leading to a relief of acidity swooping in on the finish and lingering black plum and oak flavors. Fiona Adams
