If wine could smile, the Sextant Wheelhouse would always be ready for its close-up. A vibrant profile features wild strawberry and raspberry signatures as spice and earthy tones appear on the mid-palate. The finish is smooth, laced with a hint of satisfying tartness. While so enjoyable by itself on a care-free afternoon, it’s also quite versatile to pair with dishes later in the evening: barbecued tri-tip, roasted artichokes, spicy Thai beef on a bed of lemon grass, or French onion soup dripping with Swiss Gruyère. Simply uncork at dinner parties then listen to the raves amongst grateful smiling faces.
