Easy drinking, but with interest, and very food-friendly. Beginning from a partnership with growers in California, and on occasion blended with our estate-grown fruit.
The beauty is in the art of blending… An often-underrated aspect of the winemaking process, skilled blending is what separates a simple red wine and a wine that is layered in character and balanced to perfection. The ability to take attributes from different varietals and growing regions and accentuate each of them in a single wine is an art form. Mele stylistically is a young, juicy red wine with subtle oak influences.
A medium-bodied, juicy red that leads with bright red berries, but is quickly followed with more complex flavors of baking spice, dried oregano, marjoram, and eucalyptus. This wine was crafted to pair with foods like barbecue pork ribs, lamb gyro, pasta marinara, and tri-tip with chimichurri. While this wine is dry, it is perfectly suited to drink on its own.
