Tasting Notes: With a deep cherry color, the Finis Terrae showcases an intense nose of red fruit with subtle eucalyptus and spice. It also offers very elegant and discrete wood notes with clove. In the mouth it is very tasty and elegant, medium-bodied and succulent. Cherries stand out on the very long ending. Perfect for enjoying now, but can be cellared for nearly a decade. 

Food Pairing: Due to its high complexity, this wine has a wide range of dishes for pairing. Possessing a great body and structure it’s a great complement for any red meat. The subtlety of aromas and flavors would be a perfect partner for Italian pastries or a potato and pumpkin gnocchi gratin with Roquefort cheese sauce and parmesan.

Reviews

A solid red with currant and walnut aromas that follow through to a full body, chewy tannins and a savory finish. A blend of cabernet sauvignon and merlot. Drink now.

This high-quality Cabernet-Merlot blend could easily pass for a bottle that is twice the price, given its elegance and nuance. Charred, toasty notes complement dark black cherry on the nose, with hints of fresh mint for lift, while tart fruit leads on the palate. The finish is driven by rich caramel and vanilla, the wine both cradling the palate with warmth and brightening it with acidity. ~ Value Pick at Vinepair.com
