What Are We Drinking: Dark Horse Double Down Red Blend

ABV: 15%

Cost: $10

Pair With: Enjoy this alone or with poultry and rustic vegetables

Description: Deep purple in color, this wine is composed of Petite Syrah, Zinfandel, Tannat and Teroldego varietal Blend. It is complex and intense with aromas of dark fruits and light minerals. On the palate this red blend features blackberry, plum and cherry fruit notes. High but firm tannins and high alcohol makes this wine drying on the tongue. Medium in body and acid. Slight burn back of throat. Deep, luxurious, complex but comforting.

This is one of the first wines I’ve reviewed that is over 13.5% in alcohol. I really enjoyed this. Definitely would be a great addition to your chilly nights around the fire.

Rating: 90/100
