Smith and Hook Proprietary Red Blend 2020
|Region||California, Central Coast|
|Brand||Smith and Hook|
This expressive blend features intense aromas of red and black berries, plums and dark cherries underscored by notes of lavender. The palate is smooth and rich with flavors of dark fruit, bramble berries and a touch of dried eucalyptus and warm spice on a lingering finish. Pairs perfectly with duck confit, charcuterie board, or a pomegranate salad with crispy proschiutto.
This is a satisfying, widely available and affordable blend of Merlot, Malbec, Petite Sirah and Cabernet Sauvignon. Aromas of roasted blackberry, bittersweet cocoa and roasted fennel on the nose lead into a palate loaded with grilled strawberry, rounded oak, vanilla and cardamom spice.
