A good example of fine Virginian Meritage; Corotoman is a blend of Petit Verdot, Merlot, Cabernet Franc, and Cabernet Sauvignon.
It is delicate on the wood extraction, elegant with the ripe red fruits and some spices, with a dark ruby color, but not too pronounced.
The medium acidity and low alcohol balance well the soft structure of the tannins.
Corotoman makes great company to New York strip, smashed potatoes, and steamed asparagus.
