Food Pairings for Louis Cypher "Eclectic Red" Paso Robles
Cypher Winery (formerly Four Vines) has come up with one of the most intriguing and interesting wines I have come across (in a very good way). Although about a third of the varietal composition, the Portuguese grapes really show and shine. Deep, super ripe black fruits, one can't help be reminded of a good vintage port (without the sugar of course). Other notes of spice and a distinct aroma of forest fire smoke. The palette is dense and layered and the tannins are powerful yet well balanced.
6 years in the making... the quest to create "Cypher" originated from a Portuguese wine tasted by Christian that was big, tannic, and monstrous with a sexy mouth feel. "Cypher" is Christian's version of the temptation he once tasted. Many of the Portuguese varietals in "Louis Cypher" were planted by Cypher Winery in collaboration with our growers including Teroldego, Touriga Nacional, Tinta Coa, Sousou, and Tinta Ruiz. The remaining varietals that make up Cypher are Zinfandel, Carignane, Petite Verdot and Petite Sirah. There are a whopping 12 varietals in one bottle
513 cases produced.
Notes: Aged in 75% French Oak, 25% Eastern European
|Alcohol: 15.5%||pH: 3.8|
|Total Acidity: 0.58 grams per liter|
