The drink is filled with dusty cherry, cocoa powder and white pepper with a pulse of citrus. It is bright, rich and succulent as acidity.
Morgan 12 Clones Pinot Noir Santa Lucia Highlands, ’13
California – $31.35
It displays aromas of dried cherry, cola, spice and smoke. Flavors of cranberry and pomegranate are complemented by notes of almond skin and minerals. Perfectly poised fruit/acid balance make this incredibly food-versatile.
Trentadue LaStoria Zinfandel, ’13
California – $23.10
The wine is bright and lively with concentrated “Zini” aromas; predominately dark cherry, blueberry, plum with some typical raisin. The fine oak barrel aging brings in subtle aromas of vanilla, brown sugar, cinnamon and slight toast and smokiness. The mouth feel is solid with medium body and very soft, elegant tannins that accentuate the wine’s long and juicy finish
Italy – $12.55
The texture is creamy and frothy, the taste is sweet but clean with layers of pure mango flavor.
