Hells Canyon Retriever Red NV

Member Review by jtryka:

The color of the wine is a nice ruby red, a little lighter than a lot of Bordeaux style blends I've seen. The nose is enveloped with aromas of sweet cherry, licorice and cedar, with just the faintest hint of fresh mint. The taste is actually remarkably well balanced, with ample fruit on the front, laced with ripe cherries and blackberries, giving way to hints of charcoal and fresh herbs midpalate. The vibrant tannins make for a very crisp, tight finish that could mellow a bit over time, but as it stands marks the perfect yin to the sweet red fruit yang on the front end.
