2019 Tribute Red Blend Tasting Note
Aromas of toasted almonds and cherry lead to flavors of mocha, black tea and weet oak. Bright acidity pushes the fruit forward, leaving red cherry on the palate mixed with baking spice on the finish. This is an easy to approach red blend so will pair well with a variety of meats.
