2013 Cabernet Sauvignon – For this classic Cabernet Sauvignon, the vineyards deliver a balanced structure and velvety texture, black cherry aroma, flavors of ripe plum and hints of licorice on the finish. Aged in once-used French oak barrels for 25 months, the Medeiros Family Estate Cabernet Sauvignon is dark and intense with round, ripe tannin. The palate has good weight and mouthfeel with the lingering taste of jammy dark fruit, spice and cocoa. It pairs well with beef, lamb and wild game.
2014 Saudade – The 2014 Saudade is full-bodied and smooth, including inviting aromas of black cherry, plum and vanilla on the nose. Layers of earthiness, dried flowers and cocoa integrate harmoniously into a finely balanced marriage between tannin and acid. The finish is long and lingering. Saudade drinks well now but will continue to develop complexity over time. It pairs well with chargrilled beef, smoked sausages and roasted root veggies. With cheese, try it with Manchego, Roquefort or Maytag blue cheese.
2014 Sangiovese – The 2014 Sangiovese has black cherry with undertones of dark chocolate and spice on the nose, accompanied with mild cedar and tar. It is a medium-bodied wine with good mouthfeel and balance alongside fine tannins. It's easy to enjoy now but will continue to develop complexity over time. Try it with with grilled chicken, spring lamb or beef stew.
