Wolffer Estate Sagaponack Red Blend 2016
42% Merlot, 29% Cabernet Sauvignon, 24% Cabernet Franc, 5% Petit Verdot. Wolffer Estate Vineyard & Stables, in the heart of the Hamptons, was established in the 1980s by Christian Wolffer. Their unique Long Island soil combined with the Atlantic breeze cultivates the highest-quality, sustainably farmed grapes. These grapes inspired the winemaker to create uniquely concentrated and elegant wines to fit every occasion and palate.
This dark red wine emits wonderful cassis aromas with fine mineral notes. On the palate, the mouthfeel is lush and concentrated with round velvet tannins. Dark berry notes come from the rich merlot base. Cabernet sauvignon adds structure and cabernet franc provides balance and elegance. Petit verdot provides food-friendly acidity, rounding out this classic blend and enhancing its lingering finish. Serve at cellar temperature or slightly cool. Pair this versatile red with flavorful pasta dishes, grilled or braised beef, game, or lamb. Or serve it with a wide selection of richer cheeses and dark chocolate.
