Wine Review: This dark ruby colored blend from Montes opens with a green pepper and black plum bouquet with hints of graphite and faint raspberry. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied with medium acidity. It is balanced and a juicy. The flavor profile is a green pepper and red plum blend with notes of black cherry and crushed stone notes with a hint of green olive. The finish is dry and its mild dusty tannins linger for a bit. This is a very nice mid-week option to pair with your favorite burger off the grill. Enjoy - Ken

Winemaker Notes: Montes Twins is loaded with aromas of red and black fruit, sweet spices and bitter chocolate. The wine is creamy, youthful and easy to drink. Pair with red meats, pasta or pizza.
