Tasting Notes:

When looking for an everyday drinking wine, a good selection should be an easy drinking, fruit forward wine with mild to moderate tannins. It should drink well by itself and pair well with food. This is the perfect wine to have on hand and to pop open after a long day of work.

This Rhône-style red blend opens with aromas of juicy red fruit and vanilla spice. The mouth comes alive with fresh cherries, pomegranates, currants, spice, vanilla extract, black pepper and earth. The finish leaves long lasting flavors of Herbs de Provence.

Food Pairing Suggestions:
Rhône blends produce wines that tends to be very food friendly. Lamb, pork, sausage, grilled meats, stews, and game will all pair beautifully with this wine. Dishes with black olives, black pepper, pungent herbs, and mushrooms will also complement nicely. Look for recipes where there is a medley of flavors to match this wine’s style.
About the Winery
Loomis Estate Vineyards Established in 2007, Loomis Estate Vineyards is relatively new to the Napa Valley, but already creating exceptional wines. Jeff Loomis, founder and vintner of Loomis Family Vineyards, doesn't like to be told no. When he purchased the majestic mountain property that would become his home and vineyard, he was told he couldn't grow Rhône varietals there. He's had a passion for Rhône wines ever since studying abroad and cycling through Chateauneuf du Pape in the South of France. Learn more
