Smokescreen Red Blend 2008
At SmokeScreen, our mission is to redefine the quality that people associate with a daily drinking wine. Because of the times we live in, there are great opportunities to buy finished wine from high end wineries that, quite simply, are bottling less wine than they have in the past. This gives everyone from the restaurateur and retailer down to the consumer the chance to buy these wines at a fraction of the cost. Although we felt this wine was of such quality that it could be bottled under our first label at a higher price, it is our commitment to bring you these incredible wines at value prices. The Cabernet in this wine retails for $65 a bottle under its famous winery label (which we are not allowed to divulge). Under the SmokeScreen label it will sell for far less then half the price. This value is unsurpassed in the marketplace.
Food Pairings for Smokescreen Red Blend
Our 2008 Red is a blend of several varietals from some of the top vineyards in the Valley. Darkly pigmented, it is an example of the amazing color this vintage produced. Rich and lush with minerals, baking spices, dark chocolate, graphite, and opulent plum and blackberry lead to the concentrated and balanced mouth feel. Silky, well structured tannins, core black fruit and sweet oak notes create length and weight that will allow this beautiful wine to age, as well as enable you to twist the cap and pour it now.
