Entice Cuvee 2015

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

More about Entice Cuvee . . .

Lively up front on the nose this wine fills the mouth with a luscious, juicy liquid hinting at blackberry, currant and date flavors but it's that subtlety, the flavors are only hints and then they evolve right there in the mouth into a full bodied, food friendly wine in search of a big pepper steak. The wine is powerful yet delicate with a characteristic freshness and great fullness on the palate. Intense in flavor with a deep sensual structure that is never too heavy and always elegant.
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.
