This dry red blend of 30% Zinfandel, 20% Cabernet Sauvignon, 20% Syrah, 15% Cabernet Franc, 10% Merlot and 5% Petite Sirah brings multiple layers of complexity. Our Dusk 2017 Evening Star has a classic, fruity nose of raspberry, black currant and boysenberry. These fruits come forward in the attack as well. The nose will continue to develop in this young wine. Over the next few months and years, these varietals will bring many more flavors. There are hints of spiciness, tannins and smokiness in the body, with a medium intensity and no sharp angles. Tannins from the fruit and the oak ageing provide a beautiful mouthfeel, which makes for a very food-friendly wine.
Pair this wine with lamb shanks, meat stew or roasted pork. Enjoy it with the featured recipe: Rosemary Mojo Lamb Chops.
