2016 Virga Red Blend

33.00

Virga is our rich, full bodied, and slightly spicy homage to the great wines of the Southern Rhone Valley in France. Aromas of black cherry, licorice, orange zest, white pepper, vanilla, and cedar converge with flavors of blackberry, black cherry, and roasted coffee with a backbone of baking spices, smoke and wet rock, and a juicy long-lasting finish. Pair with lamb, goat cheese, sauteed mushrooms or a juicy steak.
