Entice Cuvee 2013

A delightful, well-bred Bordeaux style red wine with a paradoxically enticing manner of managing strong spices in food.

More about Entice Cuvee . . .

Sweet candied black berry, cinnamon, milk chocolate nose. Meaty plum, black berry, touch of granite mineral, long full finish, firm tannin while the maple and walnut finish lingers for a long time on the palate.
This blend was originally created in 2003 to manage the heat generated by Cabernet style wines when paired with foods like pepper steak. The wine is designed to move the pepper heat from mid palate to the sides of the mouth allowing the actual food flavor to emerge in the mid-palate. The blend includes the five Noble Reds of Bordeaux namely, Cabernet Franc, Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Petit Verdot and Malbec.
