About This Wine:
Some enjoy working with Cabernet Sauvignon, which fares extremely well in the climate that sees warm days followed by cool nights, which extends the growing season to accommodate fully ripened grapes. Others are fans of Merlot, where the fruit often emulates that of Pomerol.
It’s a region where red varieties reign supreme, and that’s why yet other vintners — like the winemaker for the Moral Compass label — really enjoy and embrace the art of the blend. The 2017 Moral Compass Red Blend showcases top-quality Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon fruit, then is rounded out by a splash of spicy Zinfandel.
Extensive blending trials produced the final cuvee which is beautifully balanced, fruit-forward and a delicious example of the benefits of blending. Try it with a grilled burger, or pasta with a tomato-based sauce for a delicious meal.
