Wine Review: This pitch black colored blend from Mendoza opens with black raspberry bouquet with hints of boysenberry. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, balanced and smooth. The flavor profile is a tasty ripe blackberry and plum blend with notes of minerality, black olive and hints of oak behind the fruit. The finish is dry and its moderate dusty tannins are nicely prolonged. This wine would pair well slow cooked beef brisket. Enjoy – Ken

Winemaker Notes: Deep, brooding and intense garnet color with deep aromas of black currants framed by light French oak. Big, lush and concentrated with a core of red and black currant fruit. It has a range of layered flavors including dark chocolate, tobacco and cedar leading into a long finish. Pairs well with beef, pork, lamb, squab, quail and duck.

Organic status: not organic
