Cucharón Red Blend

2018 – Medium bodied red

Brilliant India ink, garnet-starting-towards-brick; medium body. Floral nose of blackberry over anise. Good structure, weight, feel & extraction on the palate - interesting-to-beguiling black fruits over herbs.  This is a food wine and will reward the adventurous-of-palate.

Why We Love It

A hearty red with deep flavors

Sultry with spicy Latin flair, this wine’s power and earthiness is wrapped with dark fruit flavors. Pair with rich dishes such as braised, slow-cooked meat dishes, grilled steak, and vegetarian options led by mushrooms.

Wow. Just wow.

I wasn’t sure how I would like this but what an amazing taste it has. It gave me a very fulfilled feeling after sip number 2 and I could really taste oak! Love this

Wow in a bottle!

Cucharon is a small wine with a big punch! The smoothness was a hit at my latest dinner party and it went well with the steak I grilled. Everyone who attended raved about this wine.

Great Wine

I love this wine. I have had it with pizza and spaghetti and it is great with us. It is so easy to drink alone too!

Cucharon

Not usually a dry red wine drinker, and have love this wine from the first taste. Not too dry and goes great with my steak, or just to sip

Cucharon me a Bottle of Wine?

Love it! This wine has the best blend . I am a malbec fan. It is
is a marriage of dry and sweet. It is the perfect wine to sip by your fireplace with a steak and potato dinner.

Smooth and easy to drink!

This wine is a favorite for both my husband and I! Easy to drink, fruit forward and smooth. It pairs great with dark chocolate, spicy dishes or just a glass!

Red wine I can love

I don't typically drink Red but the smell alone was intoxicating and when paired with Truffles this wine was decadent and smooth. I am in love with the rich bold look and the smooth taste. I already ordered another!

Yummy and a great value!

I love wines that are dark & inky! This is a serious red yet it doesn't dry out my mouth. I paired it with goat cheese rolled in cranberries and cinnamon and it was amazing!

Terrific Red Blend!

I’m a big fan of this gorgeous wine. Served it with beef empanadas and black bean dip over the weekend and my guests were wowed!

What's not to love!

Cucharon Red Blend is a fantastic red blend! Paired w/some balsamic or dipping oils w/bread or even crackers & cheese made the flavor pop! However, this was a good sipper alll on it's own!
