Matchbook Arsonist Red Blend 2018

Category:

Bordeaux Blend from California

Tasting Notes

The 2018 Arsonist Red Blend is Matchbook’s left of center take on the classic Bordeaux blend. Anchored by Petit Verdot the grace of the wine shows in an elegant bouquet of plum, raspberry and mocha. The blend of three powerhouse reds delivers full flavors of blackberry, cherry, chocolate and pepper spice; barrel aging adds a nice dose of vanilla oak. The finish lingers with dark fruit flavors, herbs and old-fashioned saddle leather.

Tasting Panel – 93 Points

Opaque garnet color and rich aromas of plum. Chewy, velvety, and intense, with notes of chocolate, mocha, and spice; dense and balanced. Mostly Petit Verdot with Malbec and Cabernet Sauvignon.

Pairing Notes

Pairs well with grilled lamb chops or a well-marbled rib-eye steak.
