Wine Name: Heavy Jazz
Alcohol Content: 14.32%
Blend: Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Syrah
Description: A big, Bordeaux-style red blend supported by Syrah’s awesome show of earthiness rich with black plums, ripe dark cherries and hints of black pepper.
Winemaker’s Notes: A well cared for and gently oaked Syrah, is supported by a Cabernet Sauvignon of equal
prudence. Oak rounds out the overt fruit tones of the two and provides suitable structure for aging. Merlot spends a little less time in neutral oak than its single varietal release just for this blend to lend more luscious plum and cherry.
Pairings: Grilled veal chops with sage, wild mushroom and eggplant filo, Roquefort with hazelnuts or warm rhubarb pie.
