2019 Theopolis Vineyards Theo-patra’s Cuvée CeriseCalifornia, USA
This complex cuvée of Mourvèdre, Syrah, and Petite Sirah is delightful from first smell to last sip. Rich cranberry, dried plum, and elegant spice create a beautiful potpourri on the nose. Bursts of soft baking spice give way to notes of blueberry jam and sweet vanilla that transcend to a long, juicy finish. A perfect glass on its own, this wine also pairs beautifully with warm, comforting cuisine.
Pairs well with smoked turkey, duck, grilled meats and vegetables, barbecue, spareribs, braised beef, roast leg of lamb, veal, charcuterie, or dark chocolate.
We were lucky to get one of the last cases available of this vintage!
