Mi Sueño El Llano
Mi Sueno Winery
From the winemaker:
A blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Malbec, and Syrah, the grapes are chosen from three of our estate vineyards located in Coombsville, Oak Knoll, and Mt Veeder. Twenty-two months of aging in 40% new French oak, and 10% new American oak, creates an approachable, balanced, and elegant wine.
IN El Llano seduces the senses with rich aromas of dark fruit, clove, black pepper, cassis, and dried fig, with floral whispers of violets and dried rose, followed by dusty earth, tobacco leaf, and bittersweet chocolate. A rich round entry of black dried fruit – cassis, boysenberry, blackberry – with a kiss of bittersweet chocolate leads on the palate. Vanilla bean and sweet oak nuances follow through to a firm, well-balanced, and long, finish. Enjoy now or up to 15 years. Pair with a hearty dish of St Louis-style ribs. For an elevated dish, try braised lamb shoulder with fennel and orange. Manchego, made from sheep’s milk in the La Mancha region of Spain, would make an excellent cheese pairing.
