This is the first vintage of Monastrell from our Sheldon Hills Vineyard and the change is note worthy! The terroir is Redding Gravelly Clay Loam and the Sloughhouse AVA gets warmer evenings which create a bigger, bolder Monastrell. This wine is super dark and full of earthy aromas, oiled leather and white pepper. It has gripping tannins with a full bodied texture ending with a bright acidity. Flavors of ripe fresh blackberry, Santa Rosa plum, and chocolate covered coffee beans end with hints of licorice. Liz suggests you pair this wine with espresso rubbed filet mignon and wild mushroom sauce.
