100% Mataró, aka Mourvèdre in France or Monastrell in Spain. Mataró is also used in Portugal. Strikingly with its inky red color and purple hues, a hallmark of a classic vintage. On the nose, briary black fruit, and sweet florals. Notes of Chinese five spice and currants also shine through. On the palate, blackberries, black cherry, tomato leaf, thyme, and winter spice. The generous and silky tannins, lot of complexity that change as it opens up. This wine will support drinking it now or letting it age.
Food Pairing: Beef short ribs, pork shoulder, barbeque, lamb, shitake portobello, dishes with soy sauce, black pepper, and umami, soft cheeses
