Our Albion 2017 Cuvée Rouge is a blend of 60% Zinfandel, 22% Syrah and 18% Merlot and was designed for longevity and ageing. This wine can certainly be enjoyed now, but it will benefit even more so from softening up over the next few months or even years. Blended together are one of our best Zinfandels, a Syrah for color and a gorgeous Merlot for additional tannins. This wine displays a lot of dark fruit such as blackberry, black currant and black cherry. The nose finishes with mature notes of tobacco, leather and toasted oak. The mouth starts with a soft to medium intensity and very soft tannins. This elegant, polished wine will display its balanced structure for many years to come.
Enjoy it with grilled steak, roast beef, meatloaf or game meat. Try it with the featured recipe: Japanese 7 Spice Beef Skewers with Brussels Sprouts Salad.
