2016 Next Step
Aged 4 years in French & American oak, this Merlot, Cab Franc & Pinot Noir blend has great notes of cocoa, dried black figs and toffee. It is an "easy drinking big red wine" with flavors of dark cherry, baked plum, red licorice, cardamom and blueberry.
Suggested Food Pairings
This red wine has moderate tannins, so it can pair well with most meats but is also drinkable all on it's own. We call this our 'Wednesday pizza wine'
Enjoy with pepperoni pizza, braised meats, and roasted vegetables.
