The best thing about our Cellar 1879 Blend is its ability to be enjoyed whenever with whatever is on the menu. We love the way the aromas of chocolate-covered cherry fruit with hints of black pepper and bacon make us want to enjoy it with bacon cheeseburgers and sweet potato fries. The boysenberry jam flavors are layered with orange peel, lush tannins and balanced acidity which always pair with something spicy like carnitas tacos heaped high with salsa fresca. Of course there are times when a simple glass to just unwind and contemplate what's next is apropos. Sometimes all you need is a cozy fire and a good book!
The 2015 Cellar 1879 Blend is made up of 51% Merlot, 16% Petite Sirah, 11% Syrah, 11% Zinfandel and 11% Cabernet Sauvignon. Deep garnet-purple colored, it rolls effortlessly out of the glass with pronounced plum preserves, kirsch and Black Forest cake scents with touches of cloves, star anise, potpourri and cigar box. Medium to full-bodied, it fills the palate with spicy, expressive black and blue fruit flavors, framed by firm, chewy tannins and finishing earthy. 2019 - 2031
Smooth, structured and easygoing in red fruit, this offers decadent chocolate undertones within well-integrated, softly elegant structure. The richness is offset by bursts of black pepper and gamy meat.
