A sumptuous blend of California Malbec, Petit Verdot, Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon and Zinfandel all aged in scotch barrels from Scotland. 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 scotch on an adventure intertwined with blackberries, plums, cigar box and cassis. The scotch lifts notes of rich charcoal 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 a big, bold merlot when it comes to food pairings: baby back ribs, lamb chops, pulled pork, and most items served hot off the BBQ.
