Close your eyes and fly away to the hills of Portugal as you take your first sip of irresistibly delicious Silk & Spice Red Blend. É incrivelmente delicioso! A fitting partner for that first glass will be a mountainous platter of meatball sliders on tiny toasted buns. How you doin'?? As for the entree, the fantastically spiced plum, raspberry and baking spices, combined with the satiny tannins and top-notch finish together give many options for terrific pairings. To access the luscious fruit in this Portuguese red, rub some veal chops with fresh thyme, garlic and crushed peppercorns, and then roast them in the oven. Dress them with a pomegranate jus and bask in the murmurs of delight they inspire. You can't go wrong if you put this Douro red next to a rich lasagna with ground veal, sausage, tomato and porcini. Olá linda. If you're in the mood for easy prep, the lovely tannins of this Silk & Spice are perfect for a classic, grilled rib-eye finished with aged balsamico. Give everyone a moment to compose themselves, and then open another bottle with an Italian Fontina Val d'Aosta cheese. It's earthy and woodsy, and the ideal ending for what will
Winery: "With its quite literal ‘silky and spicy’ profile, Silk & Spice gives new meaning to the 16th century trade route between Europe and Asia. The “Silk & Spice Route” was pioneered by Portuguese explorers in 1498, and enabled the world to enjoy flavors like nutmeg, cinnamon, cloves and pepper. Some of these spices and aromas come alive in this red blend, whose exceptional flavors and deep, rich layers can be attributed to indigenous grapes and Portugal's unique terroir.
A red-ruby colored red wine blend characterized by intense aromas of ripe red fruit combined with hints of vanilla, mocha and spices. A full-bodied wine with a balanced taste, very soft tannins and a long and persistent finish."
