2020Reserve Cuvée

Tasting Notes

Dark ruby to mahogany in color, the 2020 Matthews Reserve Cuvée elicits aromas of sarsaparilla cedar and blackberry bramble. On the palate, ripe raspberries are met with flavors of cherry cordial and tobacco leaf. The mouthfeel is ripe, with plush tannins and big, ripe flavors, while preserving energy on the palate. The finish is pleasurable with palate-coating tannins and delicious blueberry filled scone.
