DORIS Red Table Wine 2018

GBP15.00

Every vintage, we select barrels to be blended and bottled early for our table wine program. The point is not to focus on the characteristics of any one varietal, but to blend a wine that is fresh, forward and delicious when enjoyed young. In 2018 we are beginning to transition this wine to be more Zinfandel focused. The base of this wine is a blend of Zinfandel from Avril and Moongate, bothvineyards are right in Kenwood. The balance is a barrel selection of Merlot fromPickberry and Barbera from Morning Sun, both located on Sonoma Mountain. As this bottling continues to evolve we will be focusing only on mixed black varietals.

THE TABLE WINES
We are a limited production, family-owned operation. Every barrel counts. These wines are bottled in homage of a beloved family matriarch, Auntie Doris. She was our family’s Italian American Julia Child. Travel, garden, cook, eat, drink, repeat. She always exhibited the motto “Work to live, don’t live to work.”  After our wines finish fermenting, we separate barrels to age from barrels to
blend. The barrels for aging are put aside for an extended élevage and theremaining are blended for early release as Doris.
In our family, spending money on a bottle of wine was reserved for holidays orspecial occasions. These wines are for those days in between.
