Fittingly, this wine is a deep, dark blood red that blots out all light attempting to pass through. Vibrant berry aromas leap out of the glass with huge dulcet notes of blackberry and raspberry. There’s some orange blossom honey, barrel spice, and walnut there too. Taking a sip, the bramble and blackberry flavors are joined by toasted vanilla bean, marmalade and dried apple. This brooding red delivers the goods with enough tannin to drive an expansive, spicy profile that is perfect for a nice meal. In fact, grab this wine, some gabagool to start before settling down with a big bowl of Grandma’s fettuccine Arrabbiata.

Enjoy!

WHAT THE WINERY SAYS



TASTING NOTES
Abundantly spicy with notes of pepper and toasted wood, the debut vintage of Vendetta boasts juicy fruit, a velvety mouthfeel, and supple tannins. What begins with an intriguing nose of lavender, leather, and graphite emerges with rich layers of cassis, cherries, and wild raspberries. Concentrated yet elegant, it`s a wine you can t refuse.

WINEMAKER NOTES
Vendetta's bold, assertive character is created from a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon from Mendocino County and Malbec that hails from Monterey County. Offering complementary flavors, the Cabernet Sauvignon selection, chosen for its textural dimension, moderate tannins, and floral nuances, harmonizes well with our Malbec, which boasts a cherry cola aroma and has peppery, mineral qualities. Together, they create a distinctive wine made more alluring by the vintage's dramatic fruit flavors.
