Cape Blend w/Skins, South Africa
(Available April 2020)
This exciting combination of Shiraz, Cabernet Sauvignon, Pinotage and Grenache creates a wine that is truly outstanding and worthy of being a part of the 30th anniversary of LE! The dark berry flavors from the Cabernet Sauvignon balance nicely with the forward spiciness from the Shiraz. Pinotage, which is a grape varietal that is unique to South Africa, provides strong tannins and smoky, earthy characteristics while the Grenache contributes aromas of leather and licorice. Together these elements offer a complex, full-bodied wine that pairs well with roasted red meats seasoned with marinades or savory herbs and aged hard cheeses.
