2012 Cuveé Sasha, Monte Lago Vineyard
Grenache Noir •Monte Lago
California: Lake County: High Valley
Rich, dark scarlet, transitioning into a slightly lighter red ruby edge. Absolutely beautiful, with tall legs trailing down the glass.
This bold, fruit-forward wine is a wonderful blend of bright red fruit and strong herbal notes, with fresh strawberry, raspberry, and cherry beautifully playing off thyme, sage, and white pepper.
Leading with strong fruit notes of dried raspberry and candied cherry, this wine balances nicely with flavors of dark chocolate, espresso bean, sweet vanilla bean, and a slight hint of eucalyptus.
Young and fresh, with just the right amount of acidity, the red fruit notes gradually give way to a subtle, pleasant tartness on the palate.
We recommend having this food-friendly wine with a pan roasted lamb chop, served with herb crusted root vegetables.
