Marianna 2014 Red Wine
The 2014 Marianna is deeply colored in the glass - deep ruby with bright red undertones. The wine is expressive and extroverted from the start, with enticing aromas of creamy cassis, raspberry, bright cherry, and a subtle exotic spiciness of Chinese five spice powder. The mouth is luscious - dense, long chain tannins lay weighty on the tongue, wound around a core of bright fruit. Black cherry and blueberries are layered with flavors of rich espresso, dark chocolate, and just a touch of dried leaves at the edges that hints at the complexity that will grow with age. The finish is spicy and long, lingering with flavors of nutmeg and clove.
Enjoy this stand out wine with pan roasted filet mignon, served with buttered green beans and thyme-roasted sweet potatoes.
