Peter Mathis 2013 Uber Red Blend - Red Wine

Red Wine by Peter Mathis from Sonoma County, California. The 2013 Uberblend is a lush expression of the Mathis Vineyard terroir. Petite Sirah dominates the initial impression of the wine with dense blackberry and currant fruit, and an herbal, pine aroma. The initial grip of the wine is chalky and firm, immediately mellowing in the mouth with lovely soft tannins and red fruits from the Grenache and Carignane - pomegranate syrup and raspberry confiture. The finish is ins and red fruits from the Grenache and Carignane - pomegranate syrup and raspberry confiture. The finish is long and elegant with the Alicante adding a twist of white pepper. Combining power and grace, it will clearly last quite awhile for those who'd like to consider cellaring, but drinks exceptionally well today. I adore this wine! We're drinking it wholesale in the Mathis household. For food pairing, try serving the 2013 Uberblend with rich and savory dishes; a cassoulet, braised short ribs, a lamb roasted with garlic -the big phenolics cry out for something substantial to push against, or else the food will be overwhelmed by the intensity of the wine. Blend: 45% Petite Sirah, 40% Grenache, 12% Carignane, 3% Alicante Bouschet read more
