Regular price $0.00 $32.00 Sale

WHY WE LOVE IT:

  • Gold Medal American Fine Wine Competition
  • Petite Sirah (32%), Carignane (35%) and Grenache (33%) 
  • Grapes from old vines, sustainably farmed Testa Vineyards
  • Miss Wineburg is a 100 point winemaker

 WINEMAKER: Rebekah Wineburg (Rudd Estate, Bucella, and Quintessa)

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! Grapes are brought to Napa where winemaking is handcrafted in small lots.

AVA DESIGNATED: Mendocino

WHAT WE PAIRED:

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