Our Moderna Artist’s Palette Red Wine was grown in the Lodi area and is a blend of 45% Zinfandel, 25% Petit Verdot, 25% Tannat and 5% Muscat of Alexandria. The four varietals used in our blend are known for adding rich tannins and a lot of color. Behind its deep color, this wine displays powerful fruit in the nose, such as raspberry, wild strawberry, black currant and blueberry. After a few seconds, notes of white pepper, brown sugar and toasted oak linger. The attack opens with a sweet, round stage that is quickly overpowered by the wine’s bold tannic structure. The same fruit flavors and toasted oak appear in the middle, giving it a pleasant and balanced mouthfeel. This wine has a very long and elegant finish.
The intense body of our Moderna Artist’s Palette Red Wine will pair well with dishes like meat lasagna, pork chops, beef stew or meatloaf. Enjoy it with the featured recipe: Classic Lasagna.
