The Tempranillo's bright cassis and faint tomato leaf aromatics pair perfectly with the dark blackberry fruit flavors of the Merlot, with spice and earthy notes complimenting the tannin. This wine is perfect for meaty pasta dishes but has an approachability that makes food pairing choices endlessly diverse.

"This unplanned 50-50 blend fo Tempranillo and Merlot is a happy accident indeed. Blackberry and pipe tobacco aromas are joined. by a potpourri of dried lavender and rose petals. The wine's tart, cherry, olive oile and dark chocolate flavors are backed by sturdy tannins, making it highly qualified to accompany a slice of Italian sausage pizza." 90pts, Michael Alberty, Wine Enthusiast
