Smoking Loon Sweet Red 2009

Winemaker's Notes:

The balanced sweet and savory nose, full of mixed berries and grilled pear, evokes summer picnics and barbeques. Flavors of raspberries, black currants, and cherries pair with notes of black pepper and smoky nuance from the rich French oak aging. Dark and juicy, with rounded tannins and bright sweetness, this wine has a long and flavorful finish, with just a hint of toasted marshmallow. This easy-going red wine comes from a blend of 52% Petite Sirah, 32% Merlot, and 16% Syrah. Each varietal adds an extra layer of fruit flavor and spicy depth to the final wine. Pair this Red Loonatic with a summer fruit salad, grilled burger with swiss cheese, and nutella s'mores for a perfect dinner party or family gathering.
