May Wine Club 2024
Double Gold/Best of Class – 2024 Amador County Fair

Berries and cherries and chocolate, oh my! Your first word after tasting this velvety, opaque beauty, will be “wonderful”. The nose offers aromas of freshly sharpened #2 pencil and whispers of something floral – maybe lilac or lavender. And don’t forget the chocolate! A creamy mouthfeel opens to beautiful berry flavors reminiscent of olallieberry. Big, chewy, warm and juicy, the finish on this 2020 Alicante Bouschet is dry and super smooth. This big wine needs big flavors to pair with such as Pasta Puttanesca or Carne Asada.
