Virginia Dare Winery Manteo Sonoma County Red Blend Wine is a blend of 47% Syrah, 30% Petite Sirah, 13% Petit Verdot, and 10% Cabernet Sauvignon grapes. Each varietal contributes a specific character, which, when married together, gives the wine many layers of flavors, texture, and a solid tannin structure, thus making it robust enough for the warrior it's named after. Manteo takes its name from a legendary native American leader who played an essential role in the Virginia Dare story. It has aged 13 months in French and American oak barrels. The Manteo Red Blend boasts lush flavors of black currants, wild berries, and plum. Earthy spices and wood nuances found on the nose carry through on the palate, creating a warm fragrant character for the fruit. With firm tannins that support the fruit's density and a rich and lengthy finish, this Manteo wine captures the man's regal nature for which it has named. This Manteo Red Wine has bottled at 13.3% alcohol by volume. It pairs excellently with grilled rib-eye steak or charcuterie. Enjoy!
