We call it "The Equalizer" for a reason: it levels the playing field with wines priced in another stratosphere. Versatile and pleasing to a variety of palettes, this wine consistently delivers the goods. The Equalizer is medium to full-bodied with a fruit-forward character. The 2015 Equalizer Red Blend is deep purplish to ruby in color. Its nose has plenty of blackberry, black cherry, baking spice and vanilla notes that are both intense yet elegant. The finish is both long and complex with a balance of sweet fruit and tannic structure that will allow this wine to age gracefully for 5 to 10 years. Pairs wonderfully with skirt steak, carne asada & any type of grilled meat. This wine loves spicy and blackened foods.
