Wolffer Estate Classic Red Blend 2021
|Region||United States, New York, North Fork of Long Island|
The wine is dark red brick in color. It has classic aromas of cassis and dried plums with iodine and licorice notes backed by fine toasted sandalwood and a beautiful flintiness. The mouth-feel is big yet elegant and focused with the Cabernet Sauvignon clearly leading the charge. There is a bold fruit forwardness and a ripe layered tannin structure. The Malbec provides a nice mid-palate and the finish is compact and has great minerality. This wine is delicious when enjoyed young, but it will certainly improve with age for a decade or two. Serve at cellar temperature, or slightly cooler. Pair this versatile red with flavorful pasta dishes, grilled or braised beef, game or lamb. Or serve it with a wide selection of richer cheeses and dark chocolate.
