This silky, velvety red exhibits a savory nose with hints of olive, and continues to a core of juicy, cherry fruit and spice on the palate. Round and soft with great acidity and fine tannins, it is very much a Rhone-like wine, with a medium body and the texture of a robust Pinot Noir. Petit Verdot provides a robust structure, an inky purple color, and powerful blackberry and black pepper notes, forming the foundation for this complex wine. Cabernet Sauvignon lends red-fruited body, Syrah provides finessed spice, and Merlot rounds and softens the palate. Truly a New York “cult” wine, Brooklyn Oenology’s Motley Cru was inspired by the face of Brooklyn—complex, with fantastic variety!
