Midnight ( Lot #8)
The Lot 8 reminds me a lot of Lot 6. This inky wine has hints of red apples, tobacco and leather on the nose, with cranberry, cinnamon and a huge note of raspberry jam on the palate. It is full bodied and balanced, with just a touch of sweet on the finish. This little sweetness allows this wine to pair well with chocolate desserts just as easily as meaty lasagna. Enjoy!

The 2012 vintage was kind to the Bordeaux varieties here in FairPlay, and the Malbec was no exception. It has the classic nose of currants and cherries, with flavors that remind me of cherry cola and ripe blueberries. Malbec has always been one of my favorites with barbecue, but this one is beautiful with mushroom Veloute sauce over roasted chicken and root veggies. Enjoy! (252 cases produced)

2013 gave us an absolutely ’correct to variety” Sangiovese! Chocolate covered cherries and mocha notes linger over the glass as you smell it. A perfect cranberry-like acid on the palate with a hint of oak in the finish makes this one of our most versatile food wines. Please share your pairings and recipes with us!
2013 Alicante Bouschet
Double Gold Winner
This wine has notes of blackberry, dark cherry, with some grip in the mouth feel due to its tannin content. What a beautiful garnet colored wine! This is literally what the juice looks like right off the vine. This is a hybrid grape, bred with a species that has red juice (as opposed to clear juice). This pairs well with cream sauces, cheese, or a simple juicy steak. Pronounced: AL-I-CONT-AY-BOO-SHAY
