Upchurch 2017 Counterpart Red (Red Mountain)

Cellar Selection

Merlot makes up 65% of this wine, with the rest Cabernet Sauvignon. Assorted dried herb aromas are out front initially, followed by notes of milk chocolate, coffee, graphite, raspberry and scorched earth that take time to get going. There's a pleasing sense of freshness to the velvety red fruit flavors. Firm, tannins back it up. It shows a lot of sophistication for this oft brawny appellation but still has more than enough tannic heft to reward time in the cellar. Best from 2027 to 2033. Sean P. Sullivan
