This blend is supple, simple and approachable, with fruity red berry and cherry and richer undertones of cola and baking spice. The ripeness is high and intense on the palate.
Varietal: 43% Merlot, 38% Syrah, 11% Cabernet Sauvignon, 8% Malbec. Triple sorted down to the berry, fermented in both small open top fermenters and new French oak barrels, and matured in 65% new French Oak for 22 months.
Taste: Black violet color. Aromas and flavors of plum butter, cola, berry preserves, toffee, hazelnut-maple creme, and honeyed nuts. Chewy, vibrant, dry-yet-fruity medium-full body and a smooth, intricate, medium-long finish with moderate oak flavor. A bold and balanced Napa red blend that offers piles of flavor!
Pairing Suggestions: Does well with grilled hamburgers, and/or portabella mushrooms. Can stand up to tomato based dishes.
