Dine & Dessert Pack - Allure and Harvest Moon
The Allure Cabernet Sauvignon and Harvest Moon Late Harvest Dessert Zinfandel
Featuring Napa and Sonoma - A fabulous combo!
Allure is the inaugural release from uber talented Jacqueline Yoakum. She is consulting winemaker for Italics. Randy Pitts needs no introduction, both he and his wines are adored.
WHAT WE TASTED: Instant pop of dense berry then cigar box like notes kick in. Cassis in spades and not bowled over with excessive tannins. It is so elegant through the natural fermentation like a textured lattice that holds the fruit and lifts and carries you to each height of new taste revealed if you linger. Because it will indulge.
- Long Meadow Ranch (St Helena) and Bennett Ranch (Coombsville) fruit as in the best of both worlds
Sweet, Smooth and Rich.
Harvest Moon Late Harvest Zinfandel*
- Less sweet, for excellent balance
- Estate grown grapes exhibiting sweet tart enjoyment
- Small, artisan producer committed to sustainability on the family farm
WINEMAKER: Randy Pitts, a grapegrower and winemaker on the family vineyard for decades. He calls himself a 'wine shepherd." We call him just plain awesome.
WHAT WE TASTED: An exotic, lightly sweet dessert wine with hard core pomegranate and mouth puckering raspberry. Wait for the hint of pepper mid palate then enjoy a non syrupy slightly sweet lingering finish. Can cellar 8-10 years
