As the heat of the summer wears on we’re constantly on the hunt for great Reds for grilling and chilling. This week we have just such a wine, the 2015 Purple Heart Sonoma County Red. Made in collaboration with the Mondavi Family, this juicy, richly textured Red bursts with character. The nose is replete with indulgent layers of dark chocolate, toasty oak, sweet vanilla, and mid-summer violets. It is a beautiful, soft perfume and boy is it ever inviting. The palate is similarly generous with a lovely, fruit driven entry highlighted by an immediate pop of macerated strawberry. Following that up are delicious hints of raspberry puree, cherries jubilee, and kirsch liqueur. Obviously the palate leans more toward that classic Sonoma red fruit brightness and shows less of that massive Napa density. And, for us at least, that’s a great thing because, when it’s this hot out, we know that you are going to want a robust red that holds up to your food without weighing you down. Please swing by the shop this evening to taste this well built Red for free. It is a perfect candidate for everything from fancy al fresco dinner parties to sitting at the picnic table in the campground with a cheese burger.
Food Pairing:With each passing sip of this 2015 Purple Heart Red I find myself liking it more and more. The nose is so attractive with it’s soft, almost dusty hue. Then, the palate is fresh and full of ripe fruit with an exuberance to it that makes my mouth water for a bite of food. I think it will pair up admirably with a wide range of meals from baby back ribs to black and bleu burgers and right on through to grilled pizzas. It has that great “house red” kind of style about it that is very appealing because it is so easy to sip.
