The blend elicits deep aromas of black cherry, plum, dark chocolate and oak spice. Mouth filling flavors of black fruits, cocoa and vanilla are balanced with integrated tannins and a lingering finish of sweet fruit and subtle spices.
Esser wines are produced from the cool Central Coast Region of California and crafted from sustainably farmed vineyards of the Scheid family that realized the potential of the growing region over 40 years ago. These wines express the fruit, the climate, the terroir and water into a poetic expression of flavors long sought by wine connoisseurs from around the globe.
The growing season was excellent without too much rain or extended heat. The fruit was picked in the early morning hours and processed at the nearby winery to be aged in both American Oak 20% and New Hungarian Oak 20% for 6 months.
Pairs well with beef, lamb, deer, venison, and poultry dishes.
