Winemaking Notes 
The grapes are hand-harvested. After crushing the grapes into small open-top stainless steel tanks, the must is cold soaked for 4 days and pumped over and punched down twice daily for 2 weeks during fermentation, before being pressed off into French, Eastern European and American oak barrels. After aging in barrels for 36 months, the wine is egg white fined, rough filtered and bottled

Tasting Notes 
A blend of many old world varietals: Zinfandel, Barbera, Carignane, Petite Sirah, Sangiovese, Syrah, Negroamaro and Nebbiolo; that were grown on the hillsides of the Ukiah Valley. This wine has a dark purple-garnet color, with fruity aromas and flavors of plums, blackberry jam, spice and earth with hints of toasty oak. Rich full flavors, ample tannins and balanced acidity seamlessly carry through to a long, complex finish.

Food Pairing
Enjoy this wine with grilled steaks, pasta with forest mushroom sauce and lamb chops with rosemary sauce.
