GALLEGOS WINES Dos Hermanos Red Blend, Napa Valley

Regular price $56.00

Complementary ground shipping on 3 or more bottles* USE CODE VINO

WHY WE LOVE IT:

  • 3rd Generation Mexican American winemaker
  • One of the oldest Rutherford Merlot vineyards in Napa
  • 92 Points, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate 

WINEMAKER: Eric Gallegos

WHAT WE TASTED: Dos Hermanos - Two Brothers - is a 50/50 blend of Merlot and Petite Sirah. It's a dense purple color with big fruit - plum, cassis, blackberry, blueberry. Full bodied and opulent, drinking in a sweet spot now but good for another 10 years. An amazingly great inaugural release from a new, young winemaker. 

AVA DESIGNATED: Napa Valley (Rutherford Merlot, East Hills Rutherford Petite Sirah)

WHAT WE PAIRED:

  • Steak and trio of grilled pepper fajitas (no cilantro)
  • Lamb and eggplant tikka masala
  • Portobello mushroom burgers, melted swiss cheese

PERSONALITY:

Ignacio Gallegos Sr. settled in Napa Valley in the 1950’s as part of the Mexican Bracero Workers Program and started a family legacy of farming some of the most prestigious vineyard sites in wine country. Today, his son Ignacio II, and grandsons Ignacio III and Eric continue the legacy with their highly sought out vineyard management company. They believe, and live the fact, that great wines begin in the vineyard. The 2013 vintage is one of Napa's best!

  • French oak barrels: 30% new, 70% neutral
