. July 21, 2013

Summer is here!

When the heat of summer nights set in it’s time to pour a glass of the red and watch the fireflies!

Sprucewood Shores’ 2008 Meritage was enjoyed with spicy Italian sausage penne in a red sauce infused with fresh garlic and herbs from the garden.

An excellent match to end the day!

Tasting Notes: Explore the dark garnet depth of this Meritage blend carefully selected from the very best varietal barrels of 2008. The nose presents the essence of plum and tobacco flower while the pallet offers flavours of bell pepper and raspberry licorice followed by a fine grain finish reminiscent of cocoa. This is a medium bodied wine that pairs well with red meat and tomato based sauces. Enjoy now or consider for aging.
