Food Pairing Notes
Its appealing spicy character and medium body enhance many dishes as well as light hors d'oeuvres. It’s obviously well bred!

This is one of the smoothest wines I've ever tasted. When I tried it at the winery, the man conducting the tasting (I forget his name) said it's the sort of wine you drink on a rainy day while curling up with a good book. This is an apt description. I bought a bottle, took it back home to Texas, and opened it a few months later, hoping my memory of its deliciousness was correct - suffice to say, the only reason I didn't finish the whole bottle in one sitting (an easy thing to do, this stuff is really that drinkable) was that I had to be up early for work the next day. This is definitely my new favorite red. I only wish I could buy it locally!

My first taste of Black Dog was in the early 1990's in the tasting room at the winery. Black Dog has been my friend ever since.

This wine has been our go to red for many years. Our standard white is Our Dog Blue. Over the years we have enjoyed the newer reds and whites, so we alternate. You can not go wrong - try them all. They can ship to many places, but it is more fun to go to the festivals and the open house events. We have always had fun and been made welcome for many many years.

I adore this blend. It has that silky, silky smooth body of black cherry. I'm an amateur wine drinker, but hate boring "easy drinkers." This wine is easy but NOT boring at all.

My husband does not usually like wine but he loves several wines from Chateau Morrisette. This red in one of them. Very good wine. Not too sweet and not too dry.

When we just don't know what kind of wine to have The Black Dog is our go to wine. Just as our own black lab was always at the dinner table no matter what we ate this Black Dog is always on the table. We have chosen this wine to be the red wine of choice at our daughters wedding.
