Grand Cheval 2011
This proprietary blend offers an exotic aroma profile consisting of dark fruits, intriguing spices, tar, cola, and smoke. On the palate, the wine is full bodied and rich with silky tannins and a distinctively lengthy finish. Created to be Domaine Serene's "Steakhouse wine" the Grand Cheval is bold enough for the richest of dishes, yet soft enough to please any palate. The Grand Cheval is a proprietary red wine that pairs especially well with full-flavored dishes, such as grilled steaks, roasted lamb, duck, or game.
Syrah and Pinot. Produced and bottled by Domaine Serene. Kev Evenstad's grandfather, Carl Mickelson, was a Norwegian farmer who farmed his entire life with the aid of a large work horse. This horse pulled the plow, the wagon or the sleigh and allowed him to provide for his family on a small, sustainable farm in Northern Minnesota. His grandfather loved his "big horse" and as a small child Ken learned to love that horse too. This very special wine is dedicated to the memory of his grandfather and his "Grand Cheval."
