Wine Review: This dark ruby colored red blend from Susana Balbo opens with relatively shy black currant and black plum bouquet with hints of Mounds bar, blackberry, and violets. On the palate, this wine is medium plus bodied with integrated medium plus acidity. The mouthfeel is balanced, round, and juicy. The flavor profile is a black currant and red plum blend with notes of red licorice and toasted coconut. We also detected some hints of cedar and herbal tea. The finish is dry and its polished moderate tannins drift away nicely. The Tasting Panel would suggest pairing this red blend with a filet mignon. Enjoy – KWGTP

Winemaker Notes: This blend is characterized by its intense, brilliant ruby-red color. Its nose offers aromas of black fruits, spice and light vegetal notes that are due to the two Cabernets. Meanwhile, the other grapes add texture and roundness to its mouth, where flavors of black fruits are followed by an excellent tension provided by its balanced natural acidity. It has an elegant, persistent finish and an exceptional aging potential (up to 20 years). Pair with lamb, venison, or duck.
