Wine Review: If you are looking to try something a little different, give this slightly cloudy dark red colored Cinsualt from Chile. It opens with a fragrant strawberry and craisin bouquet. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, slightly acidic and juicy. The flavor profile is a red plum, craisin and pomegranate blend with notes of mild minerality and faint oak. The finish is dry and its fruit flavors are slightly prolonged. This Cinsault is food friendly and would pair well with Paula Deen's barbecue meatloaf. Enjoy – Ken
Winemaker Notes: The Single Vineyard Cinsault shows a purplish red ruby color. On the nose it has intense floral aromas as well as red fruits such as cherries and ripe strawberries. The palate shows juicy and fresh primary fruit flavors, a good structure and soft, well rounded tannins. It will pair well with light, savory dishes and is at its best lightly chilled.
