Chairman's Selection®

Quoted at $20.00*......Save $8.01

“Bouquet: A stealthy amalgam of these three family members. Florals and liquorice from the Shiraz; meaty, savory spices from the Mataro; and a note of exotic intrigue from the Saperavi. Palate: Rich, fleshy and spicy. The ‘gritty tannin’ reputation of the Mataro softens with the amalgamation of the Shiraz & Saperavi. It’s a Black Ops version of black magic. Every variety is pulling its weight in contributing to a very successful operation here.”
*Winemaker’s notes

“Dark and richly textured with mint, blackberry, and dark fruit, accompanied by an expansive mouthfeel and well-integrated tannin. Outstanding!”
—Steve Pollack, wine buyer for the Chairman’s Selection® program
