Beatrice Cointreau

Admirable Wines It Takes 2 – Millesime 2014

Tasting Notes

Our 2014 ADMIRABLE PRIVATE RESERVE It Takes 2 from our MALIBU COAST vineyard is a crafted Californian. Enjoy this dark, full bodied red wine with this typical peppery note in the after taste, enhanced by French know-how and skills. The finess and elegance of the Merlot balances the fruitfull Syrah, tannin rich and spicy notes, deep color due to the thick skins’ high tannins (anthocyanin). Flamboyant blue and blackberry aromas with notes of clove all spice cinnamon, nutmeg and licorice.

Food and Wine Pairing

It Takes 2 will pair well with “ragout”, roasted red meat as bison or Tbone steak, lamb shops, or spicy food (tika masala, shawarma).

Black forest and chocolat desserts will of course be nice in term of aromas. And if you enjoy it, try a cigar with it for their similar tabacco notes.
