2019 Chateau Fontana Bordeaux Rouge...$15.99

Blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc and Merlot

Fontana’s old-vine Merlot (36 years old!) are thriving where others are struggling and exquisitely expressing their character, blended with Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc flesh out into a champion bottle with violet aromas and a rich palate ripe red and blueberries, spice, and earth.  Deep and dark red color. On the nose, the Merlot brings nice small red berry flavors while the Cabernet Sauvignon offers a hint of spice and herbs. Slight toasted notes of the nose are confirmed on the palate with nice rounded tannins. This is a full bodied wine with plenty of freshness and a long finish.
Pair this with any red meat, nice steak wine!
This is a classic, well-made Bordeaux.
