Conn Creek Herrick Red Blend 2009
Pair with grilled skirt steak with caramelized onion relish, or Argentine-style beef empanadas.
Blend: 70% Cabernet Sauvignon, 18% Syrah, 8% Malbec, 2% Merlot, 2% Primitivo
Made from Bordeaux varieties and Syrah, this is marked by powerful fruit flavors and some degree of sophistication. It floods the mouth with extracted blackberry, cherry, currant and Canadian bacon notes, with a dash of black pepper. Drink it over the next year or two. It should be relatively easy to find, with 10,000 cases produced.
