By on September 17, 2013

two-mountain-winery-bottle-capThere’s no shortage of fruit, oak or structure in this bottling from the Rawn brothers’ young Rattlesnake Hills vineyard. Aromas of vanilla, chocolate, red currant, honey ham, artichoke, cedar and leafiness get your juices flowing. Flavors are filled with hints of ripe red fruit such as cherry, raspberry, strawberry and currant, backed by dark chocolate and black olive with taut tannins and lime juice. Want to get first-hand experience how the Rawns make a wine such as this? See if their annual two-hour seminar — scheduled this year for Oct. 19 — is filled.
