Terra Valentine Red Bordeaux Blend Spring Mountain District Marriage 2006

Member Review by EMark:

Very interesting. Bone dry—no surprise there. However, the blast of fruit that California winemakers seem to always want to give me is not there on the tip of the tongue. There is some plum and other black fruit, but the thing that smacks you hard is tannin. VERY STRONG tannin. A good wine for those of us who are not fans of that fruit-forward style, but I suspect that I might be in the minority. Not a particularly subtle wine. You have to take this one for what it is.
