Plaisance Ranch – Ranch Red 2016 – Applegate Valley

The nose is fruity, aromatic, gourmand and offers a fine richness and a very fine power. It reveals notes of strawberry, blackcurrant and small notes of blackberry associated with small touches of violet as well as fine touches of tonka bean/chocolate, sweet spices and a very discreet hint of Sichuan pepper (in the background). The mouth is fruity, well-balanced and offers a good acidulous frame, suavity and a certain sweetness. In the mouth this wine expresses notes of fleshy blackberry, crushed blackcurrant and small notes of fleshy strawberry associated with a fine touch of cherry, violet as well as very fine hints of cardamom. Good length and persistence.
