Black cherry, blackberry, & plum ripe fruit flavors are enriched with chocolate, mocha, maple and vanilla richness. An incredibly lush, smooth finish with light tannins and a hint of crisp acidity that is so rich and full it can pair with red meat, dark sauces or a dessert.

High % cacao chocolates (do not use sweet chocolate, which make wines taste bitter & sour).

GRILLED STONEFRUIT: mixed dark stonefruit (cherries, plums, nectarines) drizzled w/ salt, pepper & olive oil, and grilled. Mu-shu pork, mole. Syrup, a glaze, pancakes. Prosciutto & figs. Bacon-wrapped date. Humboldt fog bleu cheese with honey.

  • Music, Life & Literary Pairings

    Music Pairings: “Feeling Good” by Nina Simone. Jazz (Miles Davis, John Coltrane), Alt-country (Avett Brothers, Uncle Tupelo). Killing Me Softly by Fugees (sung by Ms. Lauryn Hill). “Warm Foothills” by alt-J.  La Vie En Rose

    “Creamy, rich & delicious on the ears” 

    Life Pairing: Autumn or spring nights having an evening with friends on the porch. A year-round red wine perfect for family & friends gathering (think Friendsgiving), creating memories with people you love. This wine is called Manifesto: what is your personal manifesto? What are your personal goals in the coming months and years. Also pairs excellently with trashy reality TV (a guilty pleasure to many). 

    Literary Pairing: “If more of us valued food and cheer and song above hoarded gold, it would be a merrier world.” ― J.R.R. Tolkien, The Hobbit, Thoren Oakenshield 

    Movie Pairing: “Another Round” in particular the Mads Nielsen dance ending scene
