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?

Icewine is made by waiting long enough into winter for the grapes to freeze on the vine. This concentrates the grapes' sugars, and allows the excess water to be removed as ice.
