TASTING NOTES

Discover one of the finest Sierra Foothills red wines!  Aglianico grapes originate from the mountains south of Naples, Italy, and do insanely well in the El Dorado AVA. The nose is layered and complex with blackberry, strawberry, black cherry, licorice, and nutty oak. On the palate, this big and powerful wine has great structural balance with opulent flavors of blackberry, fig, and hazelnut with hints of clove, pepper, and bay leaf. Structured with medium tannins. Smooth with a long finish. Enjoy the wine now through 2024.
