Giguere Estate Pillars of Hercules Red

$ 19.99
This unique blend of three Estate Grown reds shows off its robust pedigree in the deep, dark purple color. The aromas are a lush mix of fresh blue fruit, chocolate and crushed violets. Juicy, mouthwatering flavors of blackberry, blueberry and sweet oak mingle with back notes of earthiness and pepper spice and fine, dusty tannins that coat the palate. This intense and racy blend has enough balance and complexity to enjoy on its own as an aperitif. Strong, muscular, massive. Words that define Hercules when he planted two pillars astride the parting of the Strait of Gibraltar opening the old world to the new. When Matchbook set out to create a powerhouse wine, we chose to base our Pillars on the pillars of strength from the Dunnigan Hills: Petite Sirah, Petit Verdot and Teroldego. This is a chewy, dense, full-bodied blend for those seeking a big red wine.
