Intense ruby red in color, Sondraia offers layered aromas of ripe cherry, blackberry, mocha, graphite, and a hint of sweet spice. On the palate, it is full-bodied and supple, with refined, soft tannins and a silky texture.
Sondraia makes a fine accompaniment to barbecued or roasted meats, filet mignon, steak tartare, pasta, or rich risotto.
"A Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Cabernet Franc blend, this shows immense density and richness, and it exudes bright tones of cherry, blackberry, chocolate, tar, clove and licorice. The bouquet is elegant and complex, but the smoothness of the mouthfeel is what sets this wine apart."
"Medium saturated dark ruby. Smoky red cherry and peony aromas are complicated by ink, cocoa and herbs on the aromatic nose. Then creamy and superripe in the middle, with a hint of game adding complexity to the chocolatey red berry and underbrush flavors. Finishes with utterly suave, mounting tannins.

"A rich and supple texture up front paves the way for cherry, blackberry and violet flavors. As this finishes, the firm structure takes over, which will ensure a decade of development. Fine length. Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Cabernet Franc. Best from 2014 through 2024."
