Placing high stakes and making hearts ache, this Smooth Operator hails from Walla Walla and it will make you Holla!
With a dark heart of Cabernet Franc and equal parts Merlot and Malbec, this wine sings with elegance and layered purity. Flavors of cherry, raspberry, chocolate and savory herbs burst from the glass bigger and bolder than love at first sight. On the palate, there are plump, fleshy flavors of berry jam, vanilla, white flowers and a wink of vanilla. This heartbreaker shows racy acidity but swoon-worthy power claws its way back at just the right moment to create a drink-me-now hedonistic experience that lasts as long as you can hold it in your mouth.
By the way, this wine is a Smooth Operator not a Smooth Criminal. No Annie’s were harmed in the making of this wine nor will they ever be.
