POST & VINE Old Vine Field Blend 2013, Mendocino - 100 Point Winemaker

Regular price $30.00 Sale

WHY WE LOVE IT:

  • Gold Medal American Fine Wine Competition
  • Petite Sirah (34%), Carignane (30%), Zinfandel (19%), Grenache (17%) 
  • Grapes from old vines, sustainably farmed Testa Vineyards

 WINEMAKER: Rebekah Wineburg (Rudd Estate, Bucella, and Quintessa). Rebekah has received a perfect score of 100 for Bucella.

WHAT WE TASTED: This 2014 vintage is an elegant wine that expresses the very best of the Testa Vineyard. Soft and supple with notes of raspberry, plum, nutmeg and allspice. Because it is a true field blend, the grapes percentages changes every year. Awesome nature!

  • Smoked Aged Gouda and bacon burgers
  • Carnitas street tacos with stuffed chili relleno
  • BBQ Flank steak, Chimichurri sauce

PERSONALITY: Partners Erica and Rebekah's day jobs involve making delicious, high-end Napa Cabs and other internationally acclaimed wines. Their own project, Post & Vine, focuses on sustainably managed vineyards of quality and character.
