Pretty, inviting and deeply fruity. This old-school but modern tasting Italian style red blend is juicy, lively, dark fruited and beautifully balanced.

The Vineyard:This wine was sourced from a fourth-generation family business producing excellent wines from grapes farmed sustainably.
The Region:The Mendocino County appellation is part of the large North Coast AVA that spreads northward from San Francisco Bay. Traditionally, Mendocino wines were consumed locally. More recently, however, modern world-wide distribution has brought international recognition. Mendocino is pastoral, unspoilt, and far from any large cities. Wine grapes and everything else in nature thrives there.
Food Pairing:Think pizza, pasta, meatball subs or just about anything with tomato sauce. The alcohol and oak influence are light enough to move into a little spice such as BBQ ribs. Flank steak, gorgonzola burger, and Pecorino Toscana would all pair well with this red blend.
