Deep ruby red in color, featuring aromas of dark fruits, toasty oak and a touch of bright cranberry, this “small-production” offering from Wente Vineyards drinks like a big Napa Cab. Dark plum and black cherry dominate the palate, and nice undertones of earth and chocolate sneak up on you. This Wente Vineyard wine is a “steakhouse” wine, so it’s a no-brainer pairing with Greg’s Green Peppercorn Filet of Beef. The wine’s fruit complements the fruity elements of the sauce, the earthiness works well with the peppercorns, and the wine’s bold tannins are softened by the fillet’s buttery texture.
Also pairs well with blue cheeses, chocolate, duck, game, herbs, lamb, pork, venison
