Savoury, distinct, spicy .
Clos du Soleil's signature Celestiale red, is a blend of Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, and Malbec.
It is spicy and sauvage; distinct smoked meat, toasted spice and ground pepper aromas are lifted with plums and blackberries, and vanilla. An intense and umami palate is almost brooding in character, concentrated with a slick glycerol weight it has a long finish trailing brown spices layered with red and black berries.
Decant or hold onto this one for a while longer.
Pair: Hearty pasta dishes, aged cheeses, grilled meats and roasted root vegetables.
