Black Sheep

Blend

When you cross swords with a Black Sheep you never know what you're in for.  You'll find this red wine surprisingly lively, despite its dark nature.

  • Wine Type:Dry Red Wine
  • Tasting Notes:The 2012 Black Sheep shows deep ruby color with bright hues. The nose is vibrant with black cherries, wild berries and plums combining with aromatic nutmeg and pencil shaving hints to give a fruitcake like complexity. This unique red blend tantalizes again on the palate with ripe fruits of strawberries and plums paired with clove, peppermint and violet to balance the nutty, vanillin characters from the oak. The silky tannins bring the sweet fruitcake and baking spice flavors through to a clean, memorable finish.
  • Food Pairing:Wood-fired pizzas, penne arrabiata, roasted fennel and pine nut polpette
