TASTING NOTES: Little brother has grown up!! We have always fashioned our lovely table red, MC², as the baby brother of our bigger, bolder Meritage but our 2020 vintage of MC² has grown bolder too! A rich aroma of blueberries, back currants, and Long John plums greets the nose with unbridled joy. Stout, muscular tannins brace these same dark fruit impressions on the palate merging with brambleberries, cedar, tobacco and just a hint of leather. This is our most satisfying and ample MC² to date. Eat, drink and with the 2020 MC², be merry indeed! Drink now, or from 2024 - 2028.
FOOD PAIRING: An extremely food friendly wine, pair this Red blend with Duck Confit or a hearty Ratatouille for a gastronomic match made in Heaven. This wine also pairs beautifully with Cheeses, Chicken, Turkey, Duck, Full-flavored Fish (Salmon, Tuna, etc.), Grilled Meats & Veggeis, Mushrooms, Pizza, Red Meat, Roasted Root Vegetables, Tomato Sauce, Vegetables & Wild Game.
