A new wine (at least for me), the 2019 Frenchtown is an interesting blend of 45% Merlot, 18% Cabernet Sauvignon, 10% Malbec, and 6% Petit Verdot, with the remaining 29% made up of Syrah, Grenache, and Mourvèdre. Brought up in neutral oak, it has a juicy, red and black berry-scented nose with lots of peppery herbs, tobacco, and cedar aromas and flavors. At least at this young stage, the Rhône varieties seem to dominate, and it's a juicy, medium-bodied, beautifully textured red that should offer loads of pleasure over the coming 4-6 years (and probably longer).
