Tasting Notes

An alluring, complex wine showcasing flavors of red currant and dried cherries, with hints of Herbes de Provence and exotic saffron. The palate is medium bodied with super smooth tannins and lively acidity, revealing a delightfully well-balanced wine. Drink alone or pair with food, you can’t go wrong either way.

Vineyard Notes

Contra Costa County is east of Mt. Diablo in the East Bay Area of Northern California. It is home to both some of the oldest vines and sandiest soils in California. Contra Costa is a warm region that also benefits from nighttime cooling trends during the growing season due to its proximity to the Northern California Delta. By far the most unique characteristic is its sandy soils, which allow for own-rooted vines as Phyloxera cannot thrive in sand making non-vinifera rootstocks unnecessary. These Carignane vines are over 100 years old and located in Oakley, California.

Pairings

Your Thanksgiving Feast, Warm Spiced Butternut Squash Soup, Cinnamon Soy based Pork.
