2019 Turbine Red, Rhône Blend

2019 Turbine Red, Rhône Blend

On the nose, this wine is expressive and bright showing notes of rich umami, dark ripe fruit, and baking spices. Flavors of sandalwood, olives, and powdery tannins dance on the palate. The Turbine Red shows well-integrated oak on the finish. The fruit stays bright and lingers after the finish. This wine would pair well with Buffalo wings, St. Louis-style ribs, or a back-to-school bbq!

This is a Rhône style blend. Every year, the blend on this wine changes which makes it extra fun to taste year after year. It is always one of Anaba’s most requested wines!
