Rasteau Row 2016
Terra Alta Vineyard
This 2016 vintage of our “Rasteau Row” red blend is our first year of making this wine. This limited production wine comes from the vines gifted to us from the quaint French village of Rasteau. We planted the vines in one single row and thus it was named “Rasteau Row ” This beautiful wine is Rhone in nature and has a bright red crimson color. Aromas of strawberry, cassis, raspberry and pomegranate blend with hints of fennel, white pepper and a light oaky smoke. The flavors open with strawberry jam, apricot fruit leather, black licorice and end with lilac perfume. It is medium bodied with smooth tannins a lingering gentle finish. Liz suggests pairing this wine with white lasagna or butternut squash soup with crispy prosciutto.
