2019 "Doris" Red Blend

Sonoma Valley, CA

  • Producer

    Gail Wines

  • What we love

    A classic California blend of Zinfandel (85%), Old-Vine Mixed Blacks (10%) and Barbera (5%), noted with aromas of eucalyptus, violet, and cocoa. Freshly ground peppercorns and a punchy tartness from ripe currants and blackberries carry through the finish. Pairs beautifully with anything off the grill.
