Pontotoc Vineyard - 2012 Spy Rock

Pontotoc Vineyard - 2012 Spy Rock

Composition: 68% Cabernet-Sauvignon, 22% Alicante Bouschet, 5% Mourvedre, 5% Tempranillo

Price:  About $30 at The Pontotoc Vineyard Tasting Room in Fredericksburg.  I've seen a few Pontotoc bottles at HEB.

Notes: Lots of cherry with this one, almost like those Luxardo cherries used in fancy cocktails.  Fruit nicely supported by some toasted oakiness. Medium body and tannins but big flavors.  It's an interesting blend I wouldn't have pegged as being mostly Cab.
