Mars Red

Mars Red is a blend of red wines developed when we opened our Mars-area retail store. Its deep purple color and big, bold flavor is unusual for most western Pennsylvania wineries because our growing season is shorter with less sunshine than other places. However, the blend of grapes for Mars Red takes full advantage of sun and climate available.


Mars Red is our only wine that is oak-aged, giving this dry, full-flavor wine exceptional taste and mouth-feel. It is meaty and elegant in a big cabernet glass. This is not a wine for the faint of heart, or palate. It is complex, a blend of several grapes that have been fermented to eliminate sugars.


Because of the boldness of this wine, it pairs better with hearty meals, such as steak au poivre or with Montreal Seasoning. Or serve with hard cheese and rustic breads.


When opening a bottle, Mars Red benefits from a good breathing. Let it sit for a good hour and breathe. Let the wine take in its environment and get to know you before tasting. This wine likes to be pampered.  It wants crystal stemware over a white tablecloth. It prefers to be poured by a sommelier, but once you let it know who’s boss, it will heel like a well-trained Golden Retriever.


If you’re in more of a hurry, decant the bottle or use a Vinturi or Soiree wine aerator, available at any of our retail outlets. The breathing or aerating allow for a better bouquet, enhanced flavors and smoother finish for any full-bodied wine.
