Tribute Red Blend

2018 Tribute Red Blend Tasting Note

Fruit bomb with cherries and plum, the wine is full of allspice and fresh dark fruit flavors. Acid is bright and clean which makes the fruit burst and with a medium to heavy bodied tannins this is a red wine drinkers wine. Lingering flavors of leather and oak on the finish. It’s very versatile but will pair best with braised or grilled meats.
