Tribute Red Blend

2016 Tribute Red Blend Tasting Note

Exploding aromatics of mixed black fruits and toasty French oak with flavors of blackberry and black cherry. This full-bodied wine is perfectly balanced with big, integrated tannins and lingering notes of cinnamon, leather and tar on the finish. Pair with gamey red meets such as deer or elk, and hearty sews.
