The Moderna 2016 Artist’s Red Blend was made using four distinct varietals, each with their own unique flavor profile: Ruby Cabernet, Petit Verdot, Zinfandel and Merlot. This young wine has a deep, rich color and a nose that offers a lot of dark fruit aromas such as black currant, cherry and blackberry. This 2016 wine already shows some maturity with notes of leather, tobacco and toasted oak in the finish. The attack and the mouthfeel are round and dry. This red blend has a medium body and is very easy to drink.
The tannins come mainly from the fruit, so this wine will pair well with dishes such as pasta Bolognese, roasted chicken or beef stew. Try it with the featured recipe: Roasted Chicken.
