An homage the traditional field blend from many of Italy’s iconic regions, the “IFB” marries the best characteristics of celebrated Italian varietals Sangiovese, Montepulciano, Dolcetto, and a touch of Alicante. With rich notes of dusty raspberry, Bing cherry, dried fig, and cocoa powder, this wine is an instant palate pleaser. Its broad, yet playful structure makes it an easy patio sipper and a perfect pairing for a range of dishes from street tacos to lasagna.
Restrained on the nose, this varietal wine brings muddled lemon with a slight char and salty cheese rind to mind. There's a substantial weight to the palate, as well as a bit more fruit, with bruised peach offering a bit of juiciness. Silken in feel, there's just enough acid to maintain balance.
The best wines from the warm, sun-baked Rhône Valley showcase the best of many different grape varieties in one cohesive blend. This Rhône-inspired blend of Mourvèdre, Carignan, Cinsault, Counoise, and Syrah is no exception. Notes of fresh summer cherries, raspberry, blackberry, and lavender lead to a playful palate with alluring complexity backed by black pepper, spice, and soft, yet lingering tannins on the finish. This wine begs for herb-rubbed lamb loin or fajitas from the grill.
Fresh and vibrant, this Cinsault bottling is completely oak-free, which means that the juicy, fruit-forward nature of the varietal is front and center. Ultraripe blueberry and raspberry notes mingle with specks of black pepper on the soft and mildly grippy palate. The wine is light bodied and easily quaffable.
Wet rock, stone fruit and papaya aromas are anchored by lemon pith on the nose. The palate opens with grapefruit, lemon, shale, clementine peels and yellow apple. A chalky mineral base is nearly creamy, with some zest on top tons of tingling acidity. A white pepper note leads to a long, tingling lime-juice finish that's invigorated by a chalky mineral edge.
