CB Cellars 2018 Corvina, Central Coast
Varietal: Corvina 100%
Appellation: San Benito County
Tasting notes: Red fruits that seem to crackle on the palate - tart cherries and plums lead to black tea and floral notes. Gives a pleasant and mouth-filling texture.
Temp: Best served just above cellar temperature - or after a short 45-minute visit to the refrigerator.
Food Pairings: Corvina grown in California must come from a cool region to maintain the acidity you find here, a feature that helps this wine compliment a wide variety of dishes. Try it with anything made with ripe tomatoes, roasted fowl, pork and rich, dark grains.
