The Classic Red
Mount Pleasant Estates
For the red wine lover, this package starts with a softer red and advances to the more full bodied reds, -Merlot and Cabernet.
This wine package ages best: 1 - 5 years
This is a softer red with great hints of dark sweet cherry and a mild pipe tobacco finish. We elected to forego any oak treatment to bring forth all of the subtle hints of low cropped Chambourcin fruit.

Deep ruby black color. Baked berry, licorice, coconut cream, and delicate eucalyptus aromas follow through on a round entry to a dry-yet-fruity medium body with very good depth, structure, and vibrant acidity. Finishes with dried fruit, wood spice and tannin accents. An impressive offering reminiscent of a high end Australian Shiraz.

Aromas of toasted coconut, berry crème brulee, dried current and sweet spices follow through on a dry-yet-fruity medium to full body with very good depth of fruit and structure. Finishes with nice hints of savory herb and tomato with chewy, gripping tannins.
