A dark and rich wine sourced from small, family vineyards. Aged for 24-30 months in the finest French oak barrique. The stave wood is hand-selected for ultra-tight grain, then air-dried for three years before being made into barrels. right notes of Morello cherries and black raspberries soar above a profound core of cassis with licorice and tobacco. The palate is plush with layers of powerful black fruit and a long, earthy finish.
Blend: Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Petite Sirah
Riper and substantially more expressive than the 2018, Fortunate Son’s 2019 Red Wine The Diplomat is a plush, luscious wine, laden with black cherries, mocha, and loam notes. It’s full-bodied, rich, velvety, and supple, with a lingering finish. Like the previous vintage, it’s mainly Cabernet Sauvignon, with a fair whack of Merlot. 94pts WA
