Château de Fontenille Cadillac Côtes de Bordeaux 2015

A blend of 50% Merlot and 50% Cabernet Sauvignon, this is at once both vivacious and inviting as well as classic and sophisticated.  Vinified in stainless steel tanks followed by 18 months aging in new French barriques, Cadillac Côtes de Bordeaux is a charming and delicious representation of the Cadillac terroir.

Tasting Notes

Deep ruby in appearance, the wine exudes heady aromas of black cherry, tobacco, cedar, and spice.  The palate is dense and structured yet approachable and balanced by fresh acidity.  A harmonious finish begs one more sip!

Food Pairing

Versatile, but definitely a 'food wine', some favorite pairings include magret of duck, charcoal grilled strip steak, roasted leg of lamb, or ripe cheeses.
