2007 Pine Ridge, Charmstone, Red Blend
TASTING NOTES:

The 2007 Charmstone displays a deep ruby hue and
inviting nose of cherry, blackberry and black currant
fruit enhanced by subtle hints of toasty oak,
cinnamon and cream.  The palate is taut and intense
with dark berry, plum and red cherry fruit clinging to
firm tannins.  The dark flavors develop into notes of
cocoa, vanilla and coffee over the lingering finish.  
This wine will show even more complexity after a few
years in the cellar or up to an hour in a decanter.

FOOD PAIRING:  Despite a high percentage of
Cabernet Sauvignon, Charmstone's bright fruit and
fine tannins allow this wine to pair beautifully with
lighter dishes like grilled shrimp and the complex
flavors of stuffed eggplant as well as the usual array
of steaks and chops.

This wine is only available at Pine Ridge Vineyards.
