Tasting Notes:

This seductive Bordeaux-style blend was inspired by the courtesan women of the Renaissance who were the companions of powerful and wealthy men. These inamoratas were worldly, well-educated, beautiful, witty and knowledgeable about all things that make life enjoyable such as poetry, art, opera and, of course, wine.

The deep ruby color of this wine evokes thoughts of the bejeweled women of the Renaissance. A luscious nose of baked cherries, plums, dried strawberries, sweet herbs with hints of minerality and leather leads to a palate that is velvety with notes of vanilla, strawberry cream, cola and the faint suggestion of black pepper. Complex and intriguing as any courtesan, this wine initially shows a good amount of tannin that quickly melts away to a very long, smooth finish. This truly is sexy juice!

Food Pairing Suggestions:
This sexy wine should have an equally sexy meal to pair with it. A versatile wine, this will go well with lighter items like poultry or vegetarian cuisine. Red meat, lamb or roast duck will pair beautifully. Consider vegetarian pizza and cheeses such as Gouda or Gruyere as well.
