2018 Rancho Salina
Red Blend, Moon Mountain District
This unique blend is made with pristine fruit from the famed Rancho Salina Vineyard. Rancho Salina is a hillside grape growing estate in the rocky, high-elevation Moon Mountain District above Sonoma Valley. Graced with a deep red color, this wine opens with enticing aromas of wild berries, fresh currants, vanilla, chocolate dipped espresso beans, savory spices, and roasted nuts. Full-bodied, with firm structure and silky tannins, rich flavors of black raspberry, cranberry, cassis, bittersweet chocolate, black olive, fresh cracked pepper, cinnamon, clove, and roasted walnuts show elegance and pure mountain character in every sip.
Pairs well with hard cheeses, roasted mushrooms, hearty Italian dishes, slow-cooked wild boar with polenta, seared duck breast, grilled steaks, and rack of lamb.
