Avi­gnonesi Deside­rio Mer­lot 2013

Epicure - - CONTENTS -

2013 marks the sil­ver an­niver­sary of Deside­rio, a saucy aro­matic blend of 85% Mer­lot and 15% Caber­net Sauvi­gnon that re­veals rasp­ber­ries and liquorice with a savoury fin­ish. The name comes from the leg­endary 19th cen­tury chi­an­ina bull, Deside­rio, which lived on the Avi­gnonesi es­tate and be­came an icon of this wine's power and sen­su­al­ity. Chewy tan­nins and a de­li­cious savoury fin­ish call for a steak to ac­com­pany this young, bold red. $113 from Cer­tain Cel­lars
