Tasting Note: The silky tannins and tightly wound core of this wine are hallmark signs of this vintage’s aging potential. Blackberry, ripe raspberry, cassis liqueur, and briar notes fill the glass and are complemented by an earthy sweetness that Trailside has become synonymous with. Fresh vanilla, toasted nuts, and baking spice characteristics from the Limousin oak give an elegant life to the ripe fruit notes.

Food Matching: Hearty dishes; cassoulets and stews. Foie gras and beef.

Grape variety: Cabernet Sauvignon
