Bright red color. Layered fruit with red cherries, red raspberries, apricots and peaches. Notes of smoke and tobacco. Hints of rocks and minerals. Graham crackers and cherry pie. Easy to drink as beer in a ballpark. Crisp with a smooth finish. This is the most epic red wine for Summer sipping!
One of our most popular wines! This blend of Tempranillo, Fiano and Aglianico is bright and fruity and pairs well with all pasta and rice dishes. The wine's name honors the visionary men who built the flumes, canals and ditches to bring water to the gold fields, who sold it by the miner's inch. Today that system supplies High Sierra water to our vineyards, and is part of this wine.
