This alluring blend has rich aromas of ripe red plum, baking spices, and cracked pepper. The palate is lush with flavors of cherries and dark berries. Malbec brings color and diversity of fruit; Petit Verdot and Cabernet Sauvignon lend the darker fruits and robust structure. Merlot rounds out the mid-palate and brings an elegant freshness to the wine. While in its youth, this wine will benefit from decanting before serving.
This blend shines with leaner cuts of meat like flank, sirloin, and skirt steak.
