Pearmund Cellars Ameritage Red
Pearmund Cellars
United States - Virginia

Done in a smooth Bordeaux-style, Pearmund Cellars continues its tradition of using the five classic Bordeaux grape varietals to have one finished product.

Aromas of warm bramble preserves, with a touch of toasted oak, red cherries, and warm spice envelop the senses. Enjoy hints of cola with a nice balance of red and black fruits on the palate.

wa"The 2015 Ameritage is a blend of 30% each of Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot, 17% Petit Verdot and the rest filled out by Cabernet Franc and Malbec combined. It was aged for 14 months in 60% new American oak and comes in at 13.5% alcohol. Showing a bit more structure—thank the Cabernet Sauvignon?—than most of the reds from the Pearmund group this issue, this has just a bit of grip on the finish. Just a bit, though. It's not a major departure, and it's fully along the same "drink me now" lines. That means it doesn't have a lot of promise for the future. Though for today, for something you buy to drink tonight, it's pretty nice. The green (the Cab Franc? Some Cab Sauv?) kicks in, along with a little of the Malbec nuances, mingled with a little vanilla from the wood. There's not a lot of concentration, but it handles the wood well and allows the complexity of the blend to show through. This is a nice, understated food wine with a pleasingly silky texture for early consumption. Right at the moment, I liked this a lot. - Mark Squires
