2017 JJ Cuvée, Mendocino County 1.5L
Ah if dogs could talk - well if JJ could talk - we could describe what’s going on in this magical blend. Just bottled in early September, this “reserve” blend is a delight. Predominantly Zinfandel from Fashauer vineyard, with some gorgeous Syrah from the Vivio Vineyard in Bennett Valley, and a dollop of Pinot Noir from… honestly, Andy won’t tell us! It’s a robust, full-bodied wine that puts most red blends from California to shame, and honestly we wouldn’t peg this for a wine that’s 6 years old! Pair with grilled sausage, steak with pepper, roasted wild mushrooms, and venison.
