Profile

We're thrilled to welcome back a WineCollective exclusive member favourite! We first shared Brass Tacks Red Blend in October of 2020, and it was such a hit that it sold out quickly, so when we were offered more of this California stunner, we couldn't pass it up! The goal at Brass Tacks is to get back to the nuances and history that is at the root of California winemaking, which results in classic, approachable wines that are flavourful and ready to pair with your next meal.

This particular red blend is made with traditional Bordeaux varietals and plenty of California style. Awarded 92 points from the Sommelier Challenge, this blend is a crowd-pleaser with backbone. The grapes are sourced from reliable vineyards that add their own unique mark, and include California's premier red grape varieties. By using traditional, minimalistic winemaking techniques, Brass Tacks offers a wine that allows "classic varietal characteristics and true California terroir to shine through in every glass." Enjoy this red at 18 C in the next 3 years.

Smell

Juicy, bright aromas of rich fruits like raspberry jam, cherry, and red currant are at the forefront. Subsides to more earthy notes of black pepper, baking spice, and tobacco, with just a hint of vanilla. After some time in the glass, the fruit takes the stage again without being too sweet.

Taste

Similar to the nose, the palate is all about nicely ripened blue and red fruits: blueberry, raspberry, black currant, and juicy plum. This is an approachable wine on all accounts, with medium body, tannins, and acidity. It's plush and soft, perfect for enjoying on its own or pairing with a wide variety of dishes.

Pairing

The rich fruit flavours in this approachable red blend are perfect for an American classic like a burger loaded with cheese, bacon, and all the fixings, or pair with spicy Tex-Mex chili.
