2019 Wapiti Red Wine
Enticing aromatics of mocha and vanillin oak fuse with ripe brambly blackberry and dusty dark cherry to compel the first sip. And then you’re hooked. The palate is bathed with integrated oak, polished tannins and an opulent blend of luscious flavors. The velvety mouthfeel reveals the essence of blackberry preserves and cherry pie à la mode laced with hints of kid glove leather, fine herbs and caramel. A trace of brightness appears in the expansive finish to lighten the delicious dark flavors and urge you to sip again.
This blend is wonderful to sip solo, but will also seamlessly pair with grilled ribeye basted with butter and Worcestershire sauce, or an herb-encrusted rack of lamb.
