Red Blend 2012
WINE OVERVIEW

A lush and juicy Petit Verdot-based blend that consistently overdelivers.

Tasting Notes

Aromas of blackberry, coffee, mocha, chocolate, and fig. Sweet and creamy with good lift to the black raspberry, licorice, and violet flavors. Finishes with tongue-dusting but suave tannins and very nice length.

Food Pairing

Try with shredded beef, lamb chops with mint jelly, or grilled salmon with sage and tarragon.
