Harvest Note
In 2018, grapes were selected from prestigious grape growing regions throughout California, including the North Coast Appellations of Sonoma and Mendocino. A cool spring with some much needed rainfall was followed by a moderate summer to set the stage for a slow and consistent harvest. Fruit came in after Labor Day and the long growing season allowed the vines to develop complex flavors, good color and balanced acidity.
Tasting Note
Aromas of dark cherry and strawberry jam, brown sugar, dark chocolate, and cola with hints of cardamom, black pepper, sandalwood and licorice. The bright and vibrant entry accentuates flavors of fresh blueberries and allspice that linger into a creamy, rich mid-palate and ends with a luxurious finish.
Food Pairing
This vibrant blend is bursting with flavors that pair well with grilled foods including saucy baby back ribs, grilled vegetables, or a juicy burger with cheddar. The spicy fruit flavors also complement braised short ribs and roast turkey with sausage stuffing.
