Tasting Notes – Supercluster

Name: Supercluster
Producer: Winc
Region: California
Grape Varieties: Touriga Nacional
Vintage2015
Overall Rating:  
Pairing: This is a rare California Touriga Nacional.  It was lighter than I expected, having read about the strong tannins in many Portuguese Tourigas.  Even with it’s lightness, the oak aging resulted in a baked strawberry pie flavor, and the subtle tannins gave it enough complexity to pair nicely with the Philly Cheesesteak Bowl from Green Chef.
