Ravish Mélange 2007 - Half Bottle

GOLD MEDAL WINNER at the 2011 SF Chronicle Wine Competition, Mélange is a French term for a mixture where the composition can easily be identified as a wine very similar in style to Château Pétrus.

A medium to dark purple color with some translucence. The nose shows a good but ghostly vapor that promises to follow you across the room.

In the mouth a lot of concentrated flavors like cherry, cranberry and spicy raspberry while still keeping its alcohol, tannins and acidity in check even at this young age. A touch of mineral in the center pallet and a finish of caramel coffee with just a hint of chocolate, what a finale!

Perfect paired with grilled meats and shellfish, such as charred prawns or scallops, especially if wrapped in a protein-rich food such as bacon or prosciutto. Try with semi-soft sheep's milk cheese preferably with a herb flavor and an additional servings of nuts or fruit.
