So…..it’s starting to get cooler up here and I decided to start a little project..finding some nice reds for you to drink this winter! I’ve literally tried dozens of different wines and culled it down to a few favorites for your drinking enjoyment, (burp!)
I first tasted this when I went to Walla Walla earlier this year on a wine trip. I wasn’t sure about it, so I had to try it several times to be positive that it belonged in your cellar – the things I do for you guys…
There’s a great story behind this wine. The winery owner wanted to create a wine that would show the artwork of one of his friends, Father Bruno Segatta. Each vintage of the wine has one of his paintings on the label. Part of the proceeds goes to a charity chosen by Father Bruno. So, not only do you get a good wine, you are doing good by buying it! That’s a win win for me.
Anyway, if you like Cabs, then you will probably like this also. It’s a full bodied red with a lot of intense fruit flavor…blackberry. It’s the kind of wine that can benefit from sitting for a while, but I’m not really good at waiting.
Anyway, here’s the link to the vineyard in case you happen to be in Walla Walla and want to go visit. The winery is gorgeous, you’ll think you are in Tuscany… http://vapianovineyards.com/
