Growing up in England I hit the local sweet shop on my way home from school every afternoon. Treacle toffee was one of my staples, temptingly displayed as it was in big glass jars behind the counter. Smooth and sensuous, the 2016 Right Bank Blend reminds me of those days of sweet shop bliss, only the wine is all grown up and even more fun. Unified layers of black fruits and savory herbs underpinned by round, mature tannins and a beautiful texture make this wine a delight. And you don’t have to go to school all day to get it!
