contains four bottles each:
2019 Spiritual Thirst, Red Wine, Amador County, Shake Ridge Ranch
Tasting this wine is a journey in itself. At first glance, you’ll notice the rich plum color with a ruby core and faintly pink rim. The aromas wafting from the glass remind us of a foggy morning walk through a dense forest. Notes of leather, blueberries and violets combine with cedar and wet rocks for a truly enlightening experience. The palate is meaty and complex. Upon your first sip, you’ll be met with savory, fleshy notes with tons of baking spice. Blue and black fruit open up on the textural mid-palate with notes of sage and violet on the finish. The tannin structure is delicate and well-integrated with edgy acidity and faint smokiness. A perfect accompaniment to summer grilling sessions, Spiritual Thirst is a wine you’ll be reaching for time and time again.
2019 Paso Kink, Red Wine, Paso Robles
A blend of 33% Petite Sirah, 23% Mourvèdre, 14% Cabernet Sauvignon, 12% Grenache, 11% Syrah, and 7% Malbec, this wine is all about a dark, powerful core of flavors. The result is equally erotic...and kinky, with glossy black fruit flavors dripping with complexity. Black raspberry, chocolate-dipped strawberries, and blackberry syrup wrap around white pepper, licorice, and (black patent) leather. All this edging and denial leads to climax with tightly bonded tannins and explosive intensity. This wine really satiates our darkest fetishes.
2019 MDNA, Mixed Blacks, Dry Creek Valley
MDNA is a mixed blacks mashup of 56% Zinfandel, 25% Petite Sirah, 12% Syrah, 5% Carignan, and 2% Malbec from Dry Creek Valley, located in Sonoma County, CA. So what’s it like? It definitely hits different than that sip of sacrament you’d receive at an alter. Deep purple in color, aromas of cinnamon and macerating blackberries and wet rocks entice you with every inhale. The first sip is like biting into a juicy cherry in summer, with a bit of pepper, cassis, and vanilla sprinkled in. Trust us, you won’t want to put this glass down.
