Our Nouveau Muse 2016 Rhapsody is a dry red wine blend of 90% Merlot and 10% Tempranillo from two different Merlots and a Tempranillo. Behind the dark color of this wine, we have rich, dark fruit aromas in the nose. Blackberry, black currant and strawberry come forward. Later in the finish, spicy characters of black pepper develop. This wine has a medium intensity but also has a good amount of tannins. This fleshy red is smooth and straightforward in the mouth. Rhapsody is a structured wine with balance and acidity, meaning it will age well for years to come.
The mouthfeel will pair well with pot roast, meat stews, barbecue beef or pork dishes. Try it with the featured recipe: Barbecued Turkey Thighs.
