Long Shadows Pirouette is made by Agustin Huneeus and Philippe Melka; it's 49% Cabernet Sauvignon, 27% Merlot, 11% Syrah and 13% Petit Verdot. Aromatic and seductive, it sends waves of perfumed fruit, dusty cocoa, bright espresso and toasted grain from the glass, leading into a soft, smooth and seamless palate. This rich and luscious wine could easily pass for a much pricier Napa Valley blend.
