2015 Henry of Pelham Family tree red

I’ve had this one over a number of years and it has been consistently very good. Dark in color with a nice dark cherry nose, along with some oak coming through. On the mid palate the wine displays lovely black cherries and some subtle blueberry notes. The fruit is quite vibrant without being fruity. On the medium length finish the wine displays lovely smooth tannins and the black cherry notes live on nicely. It’s lovely and dry … This is a well made red … I would give it an 88+. We had it with steaks and it went perfectly! This is a belnd of 40% Merlot, 35% syrah, 15% cab franc, 5% cab sauv and 5% baco noir.
