A classic new-world blend of two bold grapes, showcasing the Valle de Guadalupe terroir with its sun drenched vineyards and sandy granite soils. This is a bountiful wine with flavors of ripened blackberries, tart bing-cherries and a subtle floral note of violets & fragrant lilacs. Truly a delicious crowd pleaser with or without food.
80% Cabernet Sauvignon & 20% Syrah. Aged for 9 months in second and third use French oak barriques to preserve primary aromas.
Nose: It's a frank and expressive wine with high intensity and great aromatic quality. This hearty wine is highlighted by the aroma of ripe black fruits such as blackberry and tart Bing cherry, interlaced with the signature licorice tone. The nose is complemented by a subtle floral note of violets and fragrant lilacs, sitting upon a bottom layer of Mediterranean herbs
Pairing: Serve alongside your favorite comfort foods such as grilled burgers, pepperoni pizza or pasta. Excellent when served with Mexican dishes such as Mole sauce enchiladas, meatball stew in a hearty chipotle sauce and carnitas tacos with all the fixings. This wine can stand up to the intense flavors of most spicy dishes quite well. Incredible with BBQ.
