Belle Colline Vineyard
The dark plum color of this Monastrell leaps from the glass! Notes of blackberry syrup, baking spices, honey mead and cocoa entice the nose. This is a luscious wine with bursting flavors of black cherry, Spanish Membrillo, ripe Mission figs and a touch of licorice. It is silky and smooth in the mouth with dusty tannins and ends with a hint of vanilla on the long finish. This is the last year of production from this petit vineyard of Belle Colline. Enjoy while you can! Liz suggests you pair this wine along with seared duck breast with preserved figs or herb roasted pork loin with roasted red pepper coulis.
