2021 Ten Vines Red

2021 Ten Vines Red

The 2020 TVR is a medium body red blend of 75% Cabernet Franc, 22% Tannat, & 3% Petit Verdot. This wine is dominated by fresh red fruit flavors throughout. Strawberry and blackberry notes are followed by currant on the finish. Inspired by Beaujolais nouveau, it is a wine intended to be drunk young. Minimal aging time ensures a lively wine with little tannin. An excellent red for the spring and summer, it is sure to please both red and white drinkers alike and it pairs very well with tomato-based sauces and heavier seafood such as tuna and salmon.

Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
Lively young red wine with bright acidity. Lots of red fruit flavors and aromas. On the nose, cherry and cranberry are apparent and follow through to the front of the palate. Roundness on the mid palate is followed by a crisp finish and lingering acidity, with notes of red currant. Cabernet Franc dominates the blend, contributing most of the fruit notes and a slight pepperiness. Petit Verdot offers more subtle and earthy notes most apparent on the finish.

Winemaker Notes
The first red wine bottled from the 2021 vintage. It is a young wine with a fruit forward focus intended to be drunk young. With the lighter body, it is a wonderful wine for warmer days and summer barbeques.
Food Pairing Notes
Due to its youth and crisp acidity, this wine pairs best with complimentary dishes with lots of richness and savory characteristics. Duck and beef are excellent pairings, especially when prepared over an open flame. Pulled pork and barbeque in general will be wonderful. Gorgonzola, brie, and other rich cheeses compliment the wine well and will reveal more subtle flavors of the wine. Slightly sweet dishes, like those finished with honey or fruit, will balance the wines acidity. Moderate alcohol content makes it a great companion for barbeques.
