  • 57% Carignane
  • 29% Petite Sirah
  • 14% Zinfandel

We are excited to share this year’s Insider blend with you as it is our first Carignane dominated blend! The structure and fruit from these three varietals created an incredibly well-balanced blend. The beautiful deep purple color and enticing nose of dark fruit, anise and a hint of cinnamon excite your senses. You’ll find big fruit flavors of boysenberry and blackberry on the palate. Lush and silky, the long finish just keeps on going. This wine has already received a Double Gold at the San Francisco Chronicle competition prior to release so we can’t wait for you to enjoy it!

Opening a Waxed Bottle: It’s not much trickier than a regular bottle! No need to cut off the wax. Just rub the top of the wax with the palm of your hand to warm it which will help soften the wax. Use a manual corkscrew and twist it right through the wax and into the cork. Just like a non-waxed bottle, pull up and the cork will lift right out. Remove any loose pieces of wax to prevent them from falling into the bottle and enjoy!
