Tasting Notes:

Cellar Angels members are in for a serious treat with this award-winning inaugural vintage of Davis Family Vineyards' Bordeaux style red blend. Named for the 5 varietals used, the high elevation fruit shines in this bottle with a notable and desirable depth and complexity.

The vibrant purple hue and inky concentration are precursors to the tasting experience. The nose explodes with aromas of sweet black fruit, herbs and vanilla. Complexity and balance are apparent on the rich, full bodied palate with flavors of blackberry, fig, and thyme progressing to bakeshop spices, earl grey tea and a hint of strawberry on the medium tannin finish.

Food Pairing Suggestions:
High elevation fruit is unique in that it tends to be slightly more acidic with a rustic nature due to the terroir. Pairing it with hearty meals is recommended. Enjoy with lamb, beef, pork, sausage, grilled meats, stews and game. Dishes with black olives, black pepper, pungent herbs and mushrooms will also complement nicely. Hard cheeses and salami make a perfect accompaniment as well. Serve with dark chocolate for dessert.
