A little more than half Chambourcin, this red blend including Merlot, Petite Sirah and Petit Verdot makes up this vibrant, fruit-forward red. Juicy red and black berries meet tart cranberries on a medium-bodied, soft palate. A slight tannic grip on the finish balances it all out, making this wine a perfect choice for late-summer barbecues.
Formerly working in the Finger Lakes wine region of upstate New York, Peartree's passion for terroir-expressive products, which spans from wine to cider and tea, is only rivaled by his love of canoeing and hiking. He prefers to focus on wines from Virginia, Michigan, Texas and other smaller U.S. regions, as well as domestic and international cider.
