Description:

A tradition in many parts of Europe, field blends are when multiple varieties of wine grapes are all grown, harvested, and fermented together. This version from Travessia Urban Winery is made from fruit grown in Portugal but produced in New Bedford, MA.

Tasting Notes:

This is a juicy medium bodied red with aromas of cherry and cranberry. On the palate it’s a lean, savory, classic European-style wine not unlike red Burgundy and some Northern Italian reds. Fruity but still nicely dry, this red is equal parts savory herbs and red berry fruit which finishes with grippy tannins that give it a really nice feeling in the mouth. A perfect addition to any holiday table.
