Hailing from the Médoc growing region in France, Carménère has proven to be a beautiful match for Washington State’s optimal growing conditions. The aptly named “Sergeant Pepper” holds true to its roots with gorgeous aromatics of ripe raspberry, black peppercorn, plum, vanilla, and tea leaf. The palate provides pleasant flavors of blackberry, cherry, and red currant followed by subtle hints of espresso and peppercorn which are present throughout the lengthy finish. Cleansing acidity balances the wine, making it a perfect match for your favorite food pairings. This intriguing estate-grown Carménère naturally pairs well with smoked, grilled, or roasted meats, such as chicken mole, Cuban-style roast pork, or smoked beef brisket.
