Wine Expert Note:

This Markham Vineyards The Altruist Red Blend is a full-bodied, luscious blend of 5 different red Bordeaux varieties that offers a complex bouquet of ripe blackberry, plum, and cherry aromas, with a hint of licorice and baking spices. On the palate, the wine is velvety and plush, with a core of juicy dark fruit flavors, framed by a balanced, structured tannic backbone. The finish is long and lingering, with a pleasant hint of sweet oak and spices. An excellent choice for grilled meats or hard cheeses.
