The deep, dark color of this wine creates an expectation of weight and purpose, however, the Essential Red’s first impressions are subtle and nuanced. Faint notes of sweet garden mint and eucalyptus tantalize the senses, while hinting at the complexity yet to come.
Upon the first sip, the rich, juicy mouthfeel takes over, expressive with flavors of blueberry and blackberry. After aging in American oak for 12 months, the wine finishes with round, plush and succulent flavors of baked cobbler.
This versatile wine pairs well with a variety of foods like the Essential barbecue burger, Pt. Reyes Blue Cheese and Dark Chocolate Macarons.
