The perfect gift for the red wine lovers in your life! The full range of our estate grown, organically farmed flavors can be explored in this 4 pack of Pinot Noir, Zinfandel, Cabernet Sauvignon and Petite Sirah.
2015 Pinot Noir: This lovely Pinot Noir is bright garnet in color. The aroma is redolent of cherries, warm spices and vanilla. On the palate, the wine shows more cherry and cranberry fruit, along with complex earthy notes. The tannins are soft and elegant. This is a lush, round take on the classic Burgundian variety.
2015 Zinfandel: This Zinfandel has all the bright brambly boysenberry fruit that this variety is known for. Complex flavors of cedar, nutmeg, and anise abound. This wine is medium bodied with round tannins – an elegant alternative to the those over-the-top jammy Zins. Ten percent Petite Sirah in the blend adds enough extra structure to make this an ideal accompaniment to flavorful foods like duck, ripe cheeses or lamb stew.
2015 Cabernet Sauvignon: 92 POINTS/WINE ENTHUSIAST! Redwood Valley wines typically emphasize elegance over power, and this one is no exception. It has plenty of dark cherry fruit complemented by complex notes of fennel, sage and other herbs. The tannins are firm but balanced, and aging for 12 months in French oak has made them smooth and round. The wine finishes with intriguing hints of brambles and forest floor
2014 Petite Sirah: DOUBLE GOLD/MENDOCINO COUNTY WINE COMPETITION The signature varietal that launched the BARRA of Mendocino brand in 1997, the grapes in this petite sirah hail from vines planted in the rich, red rock soils of Charlie Barra’s home ranch, Redwood Valley Vineyards, as well as his 50 acre hillside vineyard, Bella Collina located high above the Ukiah valley in Mendocino County. Following the advice of Karl Wente and Louis Martini in the early 60’s, Charlie planted the petite sirah varietal, and continues to bottle limited quantities of this luscious, hearty wine.
If you’re looking for a hearty, flavorful wine to go with your barbeque or beef stew, you’ve found it! Our 2014 petite sirah is a big, robust wine with aromas and flavors of ripe blackberries, dark chocolate, mocha and leather wrapped around firm tannins.
