Messenger 'Chara' Red Blend 2018
'Chara' is the Greek word for 'Joy,' and this blend is clean, concise, and a joy to drink. Chara brings the rich fruit and earthy tones of Grenache together with a touch of Alpine freshness from Teraldego. A soft but expressive blend, Chara is a mainstay for years to come.
Composition: 88 Grenache | 12 Teraldego
Tasting Notes: Soft & spicy with notes of raspberry & white pepper, trademark cinnamon, and a hint of pine. The wine is brighter than most Grenache blends and drinks ever better with a soft chill. The body may be soft, but the flavor is big with red currants, raspberry, and dark cocoa complemented by Alpine freshness and allspice.
Pairings: Roasted cauliflower, toasted walnuts, rotisserie chicken, classic fondue with pork & chicken, goat cheese, and a richly flavored dashi Ramen.
