Turkey Flat Butchers Block Red 2016

Turkey Flat is in fine form. This edition of the Butchers Block red blend is shiraz (49%), grenache (38%) and mataro (13%) Some of the shiraz comes from the original 1865 plantings.

This is a peak example of this blend. It’s ripe, finely tuned, characterful and just plain smash able. It’s leathery, black cherried, comes laced with sweet spice, woodsmoke and mineral, and has enough brightness/red berried input to make it feel vigorous in a compelling way. Tannin management here – presented in ultra-fine form – is top level. It’s $20 extremely well spent.
