Hidden Gem Alert

On most of his recon missions, Agent Red comes back with a handful of newcomers we haven’t stumbled across before. And once in a blue moon, he’ll find an unknown wine that we fall deeply in love with. Well, dear Operatives, we might have found the Top Hidden Gem of the year already with today’s outstanding Clayhouse Wines 2011 Paso Robles Cabernet Sauvignon.

A beautiful baked cherry in color, today’s wine has an outstanding dark chocolate covered cherry flavor that entices you from beginning to end. Bold and concentrated, yet very silken, today’s wine is right up the alley of any robust Cab lover.

Cheers!

Tasting Profile

Look:

A beautiful dark, baked cherry red in the center of the glass.

Smell:

Beautiful aromatics of deep black cherry and blackberry, mixed with sandalwood, freshly tilled earth, vanilla bean, sweet tobacco leaf, fresh spring garden, and lightly roasted coffee bean.

Taste:

Bold, lush flavors of super dark black cherry, mulberry, and intense dark chocolate mingle with dried rose petals, sweet plum, aged cedar wood cigar box, pomegranate herbal black tea, and freshly brewed espresso.

Finish:

Best decanted, today’s wine has more fruit shining through the longer it spends in the glass. The finish is silken, with great structure, velvety tannins, and a lingering flavor combo of cherry and dark chocolate.

Pairing:

New York Strip, grilled over a charcoal flame, and served with a mushroom-balsamic reduction drizzled overtop.
