Cruse Wine Co. Monkey Jacket North Coast Red Blend 2016

Ratings on Delectable

Meg Herring Delectable Pro

Notes of crushed raspberries, pomegranate seeds, and black cherries. While fruit-forward, it isn’t overly ripe or rich. There’s plenty of juicy acidity and a touch of spiciness to balance out the playful fruit flavors. As for tannins, I would say medium and soft.

Cruse Wine Co. Monkey Jacket Red Blend 2016 North Coast. Medium purple. Fairly simple, brambly fruit, modest weight fresh acid. Tasty but not great value.

Young, fresh, interesting. A bit tart, but not surprising given the blend. Probably a good match for pizza or burgers.

In Monkey Jacket, Michael Cruse wants to capture the Napa vintage through a mix of grapes - primarily Valdiguie, Carignan, and Tannat. It’s light, bright, and soft crunchy. Fun but go for his single vineyards.

Easy drinking but with backbone and structure. Dark fruit aromas with chewy tannins that softer over time.
