2015 Montepulciano d’Abruzzo Riserva,
100% Montepulciano d’Abruzzo - Deep, inky, dark red in color, its aromas are of lush dark berry fruit and autumn leaves. Full bodied and well structured; there are notes of mocha and tobacco leaf, framing the dense, ripe fruit.
Torre Zambra was founded in 1961 by Laurentino De Cerchio. Now being run by a third generation, their wines are known for their well-rounded, easy to like style. The Montepulciano Riserva comes from a select vineyard on the Colle Maggio hillside, where yields are limited. Aged in large French and Slavonian oak tonneaux, it can be enjoyed while young, or be aged for a decade or more.
The winery suggests we pair it with a bacon-wrapped filet, and we won’t stand in the way of that. Also consider lamb chops or Osso Buco.
2015 Farmstrong Field Red
A blend of Carignane, Zinfandel and Syrah, all from sustainably grown vineyards. De-stemmed fruit, natural yeast fermentation in open top stainless steel tanks and aged 10 months in neutral oak barrels.
Winemaker Faith Armstrong Foster takes a natural approach to winemaking. A native of British Columbia and mother of four, she embarked on her own project after working for a prominent Napa Valley winery for a few years. With a focus on vineyards, Faith has forged long term partnerships with likeminded growers. The Carignane used in this blend comes from two vineyard sites, one with vines 80 years of age and the other over 120+ years!
A robust red with soft-tannins and rich fruit, serve with smoky ribs, black bean chili, carnitas tacos or veggie pizza.
2015 Syrah Côtes de Verenay
Racy and juicy, it’s a medium bodied Syrah with lively freshness. The fruit is crunchy and spicy, think lush, jammy plums meeting black olives. There’s plenty of zip which carries it to a harmonious, elegant finish.
Known for his primo vines in both Côte-Rôtie and Condrieu, Stéphane Pichat has some vines growing just outside these famous sites. This Vin de Pays des Collines Rhodaniennes, comes from a vineyard that borders Côte-Rôtie. Considering the difference in price, no wonder it’s the first of his wines to sell out at the winery each vintage.
A fantastic food wine, this Syrah works with a lot of different dishes. Duck breast, barbecued spare ribs, or grilled chicken will all fit the bill here.
2018 Fableist Tempranillo
Sourced from two vineyard sites along California’s Central Coast AVA. Aged in mostly neutral barrel for seven months. Loaded with blueberry fruit and notes of dark chocolate; a velvety, smooth palate feel.
Fableist Wine Co. is a collaboration between two veteran winemakers, Curt Schalchlin and Andrew Jones. Curt and Andrew have to come to an agreement as to what constitutes the best wine before it is bottled. Their combined knowledge affords them the expertise to source the finest fruit from California’s Central Coast, from Paso Robles to Santa Barbara, and in turn, offer their wines at wallet friendly prices.
Look to cuisines dotted around the Mediterranean Sea for inspiration: paella, ravioli, Pissaladière, tangines.
