David's silky, sumptuous red blend is BACK!

    • Luscious Zin, bold Petite Sirah, robust Cab, juicy Teroldego and inky Petite Verdot...hooo, boy! David made you an incredibly rich, layered red full of dark fruits and warm, toasted spices.
    • And that masterful blending is why you get this sumptuous wine at a bargain price. You're giving David freedom to make the most impactful wine he can so you get the most bang for your buck!
    • If you like bold, dry red wine with a chocolate-smooth finish, this could easily become your go-to table wine.

Aging advice
I think aging this wine would be a sporty proposition, but why wait when the next vintage will be out in a year? Better yet, stock up on a couple so you can enjoy now, and also age a few.

Serving advice
Before enjoying, let this wine breathe a little bit first in order to let the flavors open up.

Local food match
A hearty Boeuf bourguignon comes to mind. Portobello mushroom burger smothered with slow grilled onions sounds like a match. An A5 wagyu steak, if anyone is planning to hit the Jean George steakhouse in Las Vegas.
