This wine opens with expressive aromas of cherry and black- berry accented with notes of fig, tobacco leaf, and sarsaparilla. Full-bodied and balanced, the integrated flavors of ripe dark fruit lead to a lush and abundant finish. Winery Chef Chris Kennedy enjoys Dragon's Tooth with earthy and rich cuisine. He suggests pairing with our Creamy Mushroom Pasta. The complementary flavors, textures, and intensity of both the dish and the wine are stunning.

The 2018 Red Blend Dragon's Tooth is delicious Malbec-based blend. Pliant, juicy and super-expressive, the 2018 has a so much to offer. Ripe red cherry, mocha and spice all open up in a mid-weight, succulent wine loaded with character. Drink it over the next handful of years.

Based largely on Malbec blended with 27% Petit Verdot and 24% Cabernet Sauvignon, the 2018 Red Blend Dragon's Tooth offers lots of smoked black fruits, toasty oak, chocolate, and darker, herbal, cedary notes to go with medium to full-bodied richness on the palate. The Petit Verdot becomes more obvious with time in the glass, and this rich, concentrated, yet elegant red blend has plenty to love. It's terrific today with a decant yet should easily evolve for a decade or more.
