Pine Ridge Fortis Cabernet Sauvignon 2014
To fully appreciate the complexity of this wine, serve it with simple foods such as a juicy sirloin steak with garlic butter, or braised short ribs with herbed polenta. The ultimate pairing is a glass of 2014 FORTIS with a cheese course. It needs a hard cheese of heightened flavor and depth, such as an aged Pecorino Toscano. Robust and meaty, with hints of melted butter and lemon, a well-made Tuscan pecorino is the cheese equivalent of a grilled lamb chop. What better wine with such a savory cheese than this sumptuous tête de cuvée?
Blend: 98% Cabernet Sauvignon, 2% Petit Verdot
