Wine Review: This opaque and very dark ruby colored Mataro from Three opens with a fragrant mulberry bouquet with a hint of ripe cherry. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, balanced, smooth and juicy. The flavor profile is a unique and tasty pomegranate with notes of dried cranberry and red raspberry. I also detected a hint of thyme and faint oak in the background. The finish is dry and its flavors and gentle tannins drift along for a very long time. I would pair this Mataro with braised short ribs or duck confit. Enjoy - Ken

Winemaker Notes: Dusty nose of violets, ripe black-cherries, and chocolate is draped with rich French vanilla, Provencal herbs, tobacco leaf, and a minerality that sneaks through to the finish. The Petite Sirah adds structure, color, and blue-fruit character while the Black Malvoisie adds softness and a perfumed raspberry aroma. Due to a high level of anti-oxidants, Mataro is an exceptional aging wine. Don’t be afraid to cellar this vintage for five to ten years.
