Behind the name Marquis Red is a noble legacy. Prized by kings and queens for centuries, certain vine stocks originating from renowned vineyards of France have proven their excellence over time. With our Noble Vines Collection, we take the best of these noble vine stocks and cultivate them in California to craft wines of substance and character, such as this Marquis Red.
Marquis Red is a full-bodied red. Grown in the warm inland valleys of California, generous heat during the peak summer months allowed for full ripening, while a cool blanket of fog slipped through the vineyards every evening keeping temperatures cool, producing a lush and well-balanced wine. Aged in American and French oak.
Marquis Red features aromas of dark cherry, baking spice and vanilla. This full-bodied red is lush, juicy with smooth tannins and a lingering finish. Flavors of blackberry, raspberry, mocha and vanilla make this a great wine to pair with grilled steak, portobello mushroom burgers, hard cheeses and cured meats.
