2018 Hook & Ladder 'The Tillerman, Russian River Valley   

55% Cabernet Sauvignon, 20% Cabernet Franc, 4% Sangiovese, 21% Merlot. The Tillerman is deep red-violet in color, possessing complex aromas of ripe fruit, and hints of cinnamon and dry herbs. A palate of cherries and leather, with a lingering currant and ripe cranberry finish allow this blend to show well through rich meals, yet not overpower lighter dishes.
