2017 Carter Cellars Hossfeld Coliseum
Country : USA
Region : Napa Hills
Vintage : 2017
Aromas of crushed red fruit cherries, briary fruits, and violets are matched with an electric red hue. The abundant natural acidity derived from the vineyard coupled with extreme extraction, frames an amazing palate that highlights dark red fruits and exotic spices. The complex and layered finish is wrapped in ripe, lush tannins that showcase the best traits of a Merlot and Cabernet blend. Year after year this proves to be a very stunning wine
"The 2017 Hossfeld Coliseum Red Blend is terrific, offering a ripe, sexy bouquet of cassis, blackcurrants, Asian spices, and incense. Coming all from hillside fruit, it’s medium to full-bodied, has ripe, polished tannins, and has loads to love. It’s already hard to resist, yet I suspect it has a solid 20 years of prime drinking ahead of it."
