2015 A Wine To Remember Paso Robles Red Blend

This red blend of 59% Merlot, 25% Zinfandel, 10% Petite Sirah and 6% Cabernet Sauvignon shows ripe fruit flavors of plum and cherry on the palate, alongside savory notes of dried herbs and coffee bean. Firm -- bordering on brawny -- tannins provide structure to the robust fruit, while a good vein of acidity adds lift. Complement the savory notes of this red with herb- or coffee-flavored barbecue fare such as a coffee-rubbed brisket.

Did You Know?

Grappa, the clear spirit enjoyed by Italians, is made by using the grape skins and seeds left over from making red wine. They're placed in a copper still and heated. Any alcohol still in the skins and seeds turns to vapor, then recondenses as alcohol to become Grappa.
