2017 L'ORAGE RED WINE

Always Cabernet Sauvignon based, with a small amount of Cabernet Franc, from the same two blocks, the 2017 L'Orage from Sheridan Vineyard is a seriously good, hedonistic, pleasure bent beauty that does everything right. Cassis, leafy herbs, smoke tobacco, lead pencil shavings and incense notes all give way to a full-bodied, decadent, sexy red that has the concentration and depth to keep for 10-15 years. It tastes like a blend of Pontet Canet and Shafer Hillside Select.
