Uses an Italian Valpolicella blend made with Corvina, Rondinella, and Molinara grapes. Fermented on a 1.5 litre virgin crushed grape pack made from equal portions of California Cabernet and Barbera grapes and sun-dried red wine grapes. A robust wine with an earthy aroma backed by notes of spice and vanilla. When young, concentrated flavours of black cherry and figs compete with un-mellowed oak, firm tannins, and an alcohol level above 14%. Six months in the bottle will bring harmony to the flavours and softer tannins for a rich, well-rounded mouth feel and lingering finish. Another year or two of aging will create a truly special wine. This wine can be sipped like Port or can take on your most robust foods like game, sticky ribs, rich pasta, or blue cheese.
