Tony Bellatto of La Barba Cigars sent out an email today announcing the new blend of the Ricochet that features Mexican Sungrown wrapper. Tony stated
Ricochet is meant to be a series brand, sort of going back to my roots as a Sommelier, each blend I did takes the components of wines from around the world that I have fallen in love with. The first was blended with my love of Italian Zinfandel or “primitivo” in mind, taking cues from the wine like spicy, earthy, leathery, and a little sweetness and spice. The new Ricochet is modeled after first Left Bank Bordeaux and Is very balanced and complex with a definitive spicy minerality, and a touch of soft sweetness.
