Evelyn’s Stuffed Mushrooms
Our 2013 Merlot delivers bright and fruity aromas and deep dark color with slightly higher than normal acidity suggesting better affinity with food. The main aromas and flavors are of dark cherry, plums and a bit of black licorice and herbs. The new oak barrels contribute a touch of vanilla, brown sugar, cocoa dust and toast. On the mouth the wine is almost heavy but with balanced tannins and acidity for such a young wine.
Arugula & Ridicchio | Bell Peppers | Pumpkin Seeds | Artichokes Hearts
The flavor profile of our Sangiovese has been very consistent and our 2013 is no exception; Asian spices, dried cranberries, bright cherries (in some year’s slight guava or pineapple) and a hint of rose petals. The mouth feel is also typical for Sangiovese-bright acidity, soft tannins, medium body and a medium long but juicy finish. Sangiovese is one of the most food friendly grape varietals and has a special affinity to dishes based on tomatoes and tomato sauces.
capicola, raspberry pepper jam, mascarpone cheese
Alexander Valley, Geyserville Estate A robust wine of great depth with aromas and flavors of wild berries, dark cherries and plums. A consistent multitude of gold medals and praise from wine media supports out claim of being among the best producers of Zinfandel.
Braciole | Cheese Tortellini | Sauteed Swiss Chard | Parmesan
The 2013 La Storia Petite Sirah was made by blending together most of our best blocks of Petite Sirah with some Zinfandel and Syrah. It has a very dark, opaque color, beautiful nose of concentrated blueberries and blackberries that leads to a full body mouth feel with engagingly soft tannins. After short aeration the nose opens up with the addition of cocoa and slight earthiness followed by brown sugar and a touch of vanilla, which is contribution from the new oak barrels. Overall the aromas are of fresh dark fruit and very attractive. This wine will definitely age well and if stored properly it will give you the most enjoyment in 3-6 years.
Chocolate Amaretto Tart | Apricot Cream
We produce this opulent dessert wine from Merlot grapes grown on our Geyserville Ranch. Borrowing from the traditions of port making, we add neutral grape spirits to stop fermentation trapping a percentage of sugar in the wine. Once Chocolate Amore is finished aging and is ready for bottling, we infuse a tiny amount of natural chocolate extract to the final blend, creating the perfect marriage of food and wine. This Merlot-based, port-styled chocolate flavored dessert wine is great over vanilla ice cream or as a stand-alone dessert.
