Toucher Vineyards Proprietary Red - From a valley-floor vineyard off the Silverado Trail, this blend had us mesmerized with its perfume of sage and sandalwood. A flash of dark plum and fig brings in a plush mouthfeel, where black-peppered boysenberry leads the charge. It’s energetic and well structured, with supple tannins, fruit-driven brightness, a depth of graphite and oak, and marvelous balance.
