2017 Super Dorado
50% Sangiovese from Sauber Vineyard, and 50% Cabernet Sauvignon from Harry's Hill Vineyard
This wine is our first showcasing El Dorado's ability to produce super tuscan style wines. From 2017 we produced a bright, fruity strawberry-forward sangiovese which we discovered was a perfect balance with a heavy, tannic cabernet sauvignon we produced from the same vintage.
This wine brings perfumed floral aromas with ripe fruit and herbal notes. It tastes of ripe fruit flavors with a smooth mouthfeel, medium bodied and approachable.
Consider pairing Tuscan pork stew with polenta, antipasto platters with meats and rich, hard cheeses, stuffed mushrooms or a mushroom heavy lasagna. Also fantastic with Osso buco or veal parmesan, wood-fired pizza with sausage or charcuterie.
