Nose

Aging the individual wines in various ways—in both new and mature Hungarian and French oak barriques, and in stainless steel—builds complexity in the blend while respecting the delicate primary aromas derived from the grapes themselves. Red plum and black cherry aromatics with underlying floral and licorice notes are interwoven with alluring vanilla, chocolate and spiced oak creating a complex and intriguing nose.

Palate

Black cherry and cranberry present themselves on the palate and combine with a chocolate and spice note and a hint of licorice, creating a complex and textured mouthfeel.  The finish is lingering and fresh with subtle oak and red fruit.

Pairings

Pair with slow-roasted beef and lamb, tomato-based pasta dishes and classic Italian pizza.

Notes

Black cherry and oak-influenced notes follow through from the nose and are combined with a freshness and an elegant structure that makes this wine food friendly.

Varietals

Marechal Foch, Marquette, Triomphe D’Alsace and Lucie Kuhlmann
