Food Pairings for Eponymous Red Bordeaux Blend Sonoma Valley Macallister Vineyard
This third vintage of Eponymous Red Wine immediately pleases with complex aromas hinting of cassis, spicy oak notes, orange peel, slight camphor, raspberries and hints of vanilla and cloves as it opens. Held to the light one see a rich, purple-scarlet color that hints of at the broad palette these grapes afford the winemaker. It has excellent body and structure with the flavors following the aromas and added nuances of chocolate and allspice. The mouth feel has the elegance and balance that is the hallmark of a fine red wine/Bordeaux blend with a lush entry and continuing through the mid-palate and on to a long, pleasing finish.The grapes come from a single vineyard, MacAllister Vineyard, near the ridge of the Mayacamas Range on the Sonoma side of Mt. Veeder. This is a spectacular sloping site with multiple exposures and well drained, low fertility soil.Varietal: 81% Cabernet Sauvignon8% Cabernet Franc11% MerlotAppelation: Sonoma Valley, MacAllister VineyardAging: 20 Months (50% new oak and 90% french/10% americanAlcohol: 14.6%
