Wine Review: 2003 Women of the Vine Rojo, Red Wine

This wine has a beautiful dark almost purple garnet color. The  nose has aromas of  cherry, cassis with an addition of spice. The palate mimics the nose with an addition of an herbal note ( maybe sage) and a long fruit and spice filled finish. This wine would pair well with hearty foods, especially beef and meats off the grill. Hint: I would prepare a sage compound butter and put a pat of this on a grilled steak and pair it with this wine.  I would also pair this wine with aged cheddar and other full flavored cheeses. Note:  This wine was a sample provided by Women of the Vine Cellars. The SRP is $42.99.
