Food Pairings for Maugle Sierra Vineyards 1740 Ledyard House Red
A Merlot/St. Croix blend, the Merlot grapes are brought in from Long Island, but the St. Croix is all grown locally on Maugle Sierra land. Merlots are tough here in the northeast, as the grape does not do as well in the colder winters and shorter growing seasons, often resulting in a wine that is less robust than the Merlots of the west coast. By blending it with the St. Croix, rather than trying to make a true Merlot, Maugle Sierra produced a medium-bodied garnet-colored wine with a rich fruity nose with notes of cherry and black cherry. The mouth feel is soft with light tannins and very strong notes of cherry. After the first sip, winemaker Paul Maugle starts handing out the chocolate, which really brings out the tannins, reducing the overall sweetness and evoking a slight smokiness from the oaking.
My favorite mealtime wine from this vintner. Complex and fruity, balanced on the tongue with enough flavor to support any grilled meat. Enjoy this straight through your meal!
