Tasting Notes:This red blend begins to seduce the moment the wine is poured, exhibiting a deep garnet color with hints of purple. An intoxicating, layered nose begs the drinker to fully explore the complex aromas, taking time to identify each before indulging in even the smallest sip. Highly aromatic, the perfume of this wine is much the scent of perfume on a beautiful woman- hypnotic, mysterious and intriguing. The drinker becomes tangled in a pleasurable myriad of lush fruit aromas of blueberries, plum, fig and black cherry. Peeling away aromas layer by layers the nose is further tantalized by vanilla, caramel, mushrooms, cloves, pine, dust and leather. With one taste of this alluring blend, the drinker is rewarded for taking the time to appreciate the highly complex nose. A surge of baked red and black fruit, toast, cinnamon and hint of Bell peppers join in during the tasting experience. With moderate tannins and well-balanced acidity, this wine is very satisfying on its own or pairs well with appropriately robust dishes.

Food Pairing Suggestions:This full-bodied wine needs a more robust, hearty dish to stand up to it. Beef, venison, lamb or veal all work well as will hearty red sauce-based pasta dishes. Hard aged cheeses or blue-vein cheeses offer a nice compliment to the wine or, when served with dessert, pair with dark chocolate.
About the Winery
Robinson Family Vineyards For second generation proprietor Susie, to whom the estate was passed from her father, and to Tom, who began dating Susie in high school, retirement meant focusing on the everyday operations of the family estate full-time and all the dirty hands, sore backs and number crunching that came with it. These are the same values that Susie and Tom instilled in their three daughters who, along with the eight grandchildren with whom the girls have blessed them, are the source of their greatest joy.
