Description

What are you drinking this Cinco de Mayo? From one of the most celebrated wine growing regions in Mexico, Pavo Real Rojo exhibits intense and fruit forward aromas of dried strawberry, black cherry liqueur, black currants, crushed pomegranates, violets, wet leaves, wild herbs, black pepper, cacao nibs, wet leather and dried clay. The palate is full, layered, rich and spicy with flavors of preserved raspberries, strawberries, bitter chocolate, dried herbs and baking spices It has a fruity and delicate nose with notes of plum and cherry. It is rich, dry, and medium to full body, with persistence on the palate. Pavo Real Rojo is aged in steel barrels in Mexico. This intense and flavorful wine demands a rich meal. But it also plays nicely with other liquors – for example, with tequila and mezcal for a twist on the margarita, or with fresh fruit for a sangria.

THE WINERY

Pavo Real

Pavo Real, which is Spanish for “Peacock”, is a unique assembly of originally European varieties produced in Mexico. The Mexican father and leader of the Independence, Priest Miguel Hidalgo harvested wine grapes in the 19th Century, in Dolores Hidalgo, Guanajuato, Mexico - the same land in which the grapes that produce this wine are cultivated today.

Mexico was the first country in North America to plant grapes to produce wine and is now a diverse wine region offering a melting pot of French, Spanish, and Italian grape varietls. The grapes are cultivated at 2000 meters above sea level, nourishing them with the depth and complexities that the climate and land has to offer.
