Locations Ca Red
The Locations CA California Red, this being the CA-4 designation (2014), begins with a very pleasant aroma of blackberry, grape jam, violets, spice, a bit of bramble and more. The wine tastes fantastic with a rich, smooth and thick mouthfeel full of blackberry, plum, licorice, pepper and spice. It is a bit hot (no surprise at 15.5% alcohol) but it works in this wine since the flavors are so big and rich. Lots of oaky notes lead into the rich, dry, savory and long finish. It does need some time to open up when first popped but after that, wow, this is an excellent, extremely flavorful wine.
