Cosentino The Dark Red
|Delivery time:||within 1 business day|
A proprietary blend of Petite Sirah, Petit Verdot and Cabernet Sauvignon.
THE Dark lives up to its name with an inky dark hue in the glass and rich aromas of plum, blackberry jam and blueberry cobbler. The palate is dense with fruit flavors, pepper spice and vanilla barrel toast leading to a brooding finish that is smooth and opulent.
The grapes for THE Dark were hand-harvested in Lodi, an AVA known to benefit from the cooling Delta influence. The 2018 harvest was notably even and steady, providing balanced yields of quality fruit which allowed us to craft a wine with both freshness and depth of fruit. Don’t be afraid of THE Dark – enjoy now or over the next three years.
THE Dark can hold its own against slow-roasted short ribs and rosemary-crusted lamb but is equally delicious to indulge in after dinner alongside aged Gouda or flourless chocolate cake.
