Sparkplug Red Blend
A sumptuous blend of California Malbec, Petit Verdot, Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon and Zinfandel all aged in Tennessee Bourbon barrels. This wine is huge in all aspects: deep black fruit aromas with undertones of cigar box, cedar wood and anise. The lush flavors take the wine and bourbon on an adventure intertwined with blackberries, plums and cassis. The bourbon lifts notes lift the boldness level up a notch, depositing hints of char, smoke and caramel chewiness.
This red is big, round and bossy. Time to get the fire started.
This wine would fall into the same category as an Old Vine Zinfandel when it comes to food pairings: BBQ chicken, baby back ribs, flat bread pizza, pulled pork, and most items served hot off the BBQ.
