For the red wine lover, gift 2 of our best-selling signature estate grown and craft made wines: Primitivo and Barbera.
Primitivo 2020: This red is light on tannins, dancing on your tongue with characteristics of plum, dried cherries, black pepper, vanilla and licorice. A very balanced structure and mineral taste due to our Sierra granite soil. Due to its light tannins, it pairs well with anything tomato based, such as spaghetti Bolognese, veal parmigiana, or chicken cacciatore. It is also great with earthy vegetables like mushrooms, onion and eggplant, or dry and firm cheeses. French oak. 14.7% alcohol. 224 cases produced.
Barbera 2020: Winner of 2023 Best in Class Award by Peninsula Underground. Our Barbera is a full-bodied hearty red wine with characteristics of dark cherry, plum, blackberry, vanilla, nutmeg, low in tannins with medium acidity. Perfect for pairing with rich dark meats, pastas, Paella, root vegetables and braised greens. 15.9% alcohol. 121 cases produced.
