Silver Trident Playing with Fire 2016 | Easy Drinking Big Red
Silver Trident Playing with Fire 2016 presents a complex cornucopia of dark brooding black fruit, blueberry and baking spice aromas. Subtle nuances of delicate floral and pink peppercorns interlaced with ripe red summer fruit, savory herbs, meaty bacon, and hints of wet red clay. Bold and expressive, showing toasted Italian bread, chocolate-covered strawberries and a pinch of Espelette pepper.
So, the Rhône grape varietals of Grenache and Syrah, when partnered with the Malbec, offer both old world and new world character. Add the 4% Viognier partnered with the Syrah makes this something special. While flavors quickly evolve from black cherry to fresh mint, vanilla, and baking spice before returning to its dark raspberry core. Yet the Silver Trident Playing with Fire 2016 finish is youthful with silky tannin and mouth-watering acidity. Ready to drink upon release yet worthy of some cellar time.
