Vilafonte Series M is a splendid blend of Merlot, Malbec, Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc from South Africa. This red blend shows a dense purple color with a brilliant red rim in the glass. Open and inviting, this aromatic wine offers a smorgasbord of red fruit characters: plums, dark cherry preserves, and dried cranberries. Underlying these are more mature aromas of dried flowers, balsamic and fruitcake revealed from its 22 months in French oak barrels. This 2016 vintage is notable for its silky, succulent entry, lovely weight, resolved tannin, ripe red fruit flavors, and long finish.
This is a big, bold wine and although immediately accessible, cellaring will reward the patient collector for the next two decades or even more.
Pairs well with all meat dishes but particularly well with Coq au Vin and Beef Wellington.
