Cortina Red 2011
Dry Red Wine
This classic Meritage blend of 50% Cabernet Sauvignon, 30% Syrah and 20% Petit Verdot is a medium bodied wine with concentrated fruit notes throughout. At first sip hints of blackberry and coffee give way to notes of dark cherry with a mocha profile. Smooth texture and a clean finish is the hallmark of this wine. This is our first vintage, a wine we are proud to call Cortina Red.
Pairs well with hearty beef dishes; Braised ox-tail on a crisp Autumn evening served with Sacramento Valley medium grain rice pilaf
Slow roasted lamb shanks with garlic mashed potatoes and a side of grilled artichokes served with lemon aioli.
