One of our most awarded wines, complex and unique. You'll have a hard time finding another blend like this, especially at this value.
Inviting on the nose with notes of ripe red fruit, blackberry, blueberry, and a hint of spice. It hits the palate with incredible balance that lasts through its long finish. It has fruit at the core with an acidity from the Carignan that lifts the wine on the back palate.
Cherry-braised short ribs, BBQ flank steak, or grilled portobellas.
