Join us for a night out at Braxton Barrel House! Each month we're featuring a special wine for Wine Wednesday paired with charcuterie & cheese from Parlor on Seventh.
February's Wine Wednesday highlights two wines from Orin Swift Cellars. For $40, you'll receive two 5oz. pours of wine with a charcuterie & cheese pairing from Parlor on Seventh.
––– 2016 Machete –––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––
Petite Sirah, Syrah and Grenache
Aged for 10 months in French Oak 40% New.
Violet ink in the glass, a nose of black plums, cassis, and cacao engage. The robust entry consists of a progressing palate of blackberry and boysenberry compote, a reduction of dark plum and ripe figs, and pure Amarena cherry. Flashes of vanilla and traces of minerality evolve into chalky tannins and a smooth lingering finish.
–– 2016 Papillon Napa Valley Red Blend –––––––––––––––
Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Petit Verdot and Malbec.
The wine has a deep red color with a garnet hue that is almost black. The aromas are of classic Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon with cedar box, rose petal and hints of soft French oak. The entry is subtle ripe raspberry and boysenberry. Loads of cherry, plum and intense cassis frame long chains of soft tannins that form a long and lingering finish.
