“The Valentina showcases a classic blend of grapes, each variety adding a layer of complexity to create something greater than the sum of its parts.  Cabernet Sauvignon (24%) gives it structure, Merlot (44%) a vibrant heart, and Malbec (32%) a touch of attitude...just like my daughter, Charli Valentina."

Tasting notes

This wine greets you with prominent aromas of fresh cranberry & plum with hints of black tea. Flavors continue the aromas and add cloves and anise. The texture is rich with prominent tannins followed by a long finish.

Production notes

Hand harvested. Fermented in 1 ton bins with 3 punch-downs per day.  Bladder pressed after an average 7 days of skin contact. Malolactic fermentation in barrel. 20 months of barrel aging in barrels of French, Hungarian and American origin, 18% new oak, 82% neautral oak. Bottled in June 2018.

Other notes

Try this with a blue cheese burger with bacon, pot roast with roasted vegetables or be fancy and pair it with cornish game hen. This wine also will get along with a raspberry dark chocolate themed dessert.

When to drink: During the first few years, decant for an hour and then enjoy. This wine will continue to evolve beautifully over the next 5-25 years.
