2017 Mataro

E2 Vineyard, Fair Play

 

Tasting Notes

This garnet colored wine offers aromas of dark fruits, violets, dried thyme and bay leaf, and a hint of smoke. It is rich and bright with cherry flavors on the palate, and a smooth finish with subtle, tea-like tannins.

Winemaking Notes

Harvested early in the morning, sorted, and destemmed upon reaching the winery, followed by a 10-day fermentation in tank, then pressed to barrel for aging.

Food Pairing

Pairs well with just about any hearty and meaty dish, from hamburgers and pizza to short ribs, veal, pork, lamb, sausage, game and other meats, especially grilled meats. Meat empanadas. The perfect wine for your next barbecue!

Aging

Aged in one 2nd use American oak barrel and two 3rd use American oak barrels for 20 months.
