El Portal Red Blend
Both Zinfandel and Merlot are popular grapes on their own, and this combination with Syrah proves that the sum can be greater than its parts. In this smooth and ripe-flavored red, blackberry and cherry aromas are joined by notes of black currant, plum, spice, and violet. Touches of sweet tobacco and spice accentuate the fruit-forward flavor, making El Portal Red Blend very food friendly.

It’s a versatile food wine, that pairs well with fish, grilled chicken or vegetables, and we’ve found that it’s the bottle that thrills white wine fans…and converts red wine drinkers.
