2017 The Alibi - Guardian Cellars Winery and Tasting Room
Oh yeah, this berry-busting wine is back! The Alibi rounds out our triple threat of Bordeaux-style blends here at Guardian- you started the year with Gun Metal and The Wanted and now it’s time for the Red Mountain blend. A blend of 55% Cabernet and 45% Merlot, this vintage is full of notes of blackberry, black cherry, italian black plum and vanilla. This is definitely a classic Red Mountain wine, it’s round, full, concentrated and dense. The finish and lovely and lifted. The Alibi was aged 21 months on 75% new French oak.
