This unique blend of three Estate Grown reds shows off its robust pedigree in the deep, dark purple color. The aromas are a lush mix of fresh blue fruit, chocolate and crushed violets. Juicy, mouthwatering flavors of blackberry, blueberry and sweet oak mingle with back notes of earthiness and pepper spice and fine, dusty tannins that coat the palate.

This intense and racy blend has enough balance and complexity to enjoy on its own as an aperitif. It is also a great choice to pair with baby back ribs, Korean short ribs and anything with a rich barbeque sauce.

Blend: 63% Petite Sirah, 24% Petit Verdot, 13% Teroldego.

What constitutes make-believe from a real red blend wine? The former is often made up on the fly—leftover wines in the cellar—or things made for the marketplace with little planning. For the 2019 Giguiere Estate Pillars of Hercules Red, the wine was a long-range plan by proprietor John Giguiere, and it was thoughtfully developed and well-executed by winemaker Dan Cederquist. TASTING NOTES: This wine is "strong, muscular, and massive" according to the winery. Combining two powerful grape varieties (Petite Sirah and Petit Verdot) with the lively and elegant grape variety, Teroldego, this wine is rich, persistent, and lively. Pair it with Thai Basil chicken. (Tasted: March 22, 2021, San Francisco, CA)
This is a serious, deep blend that celebrates ripeness and concentration without much tannin. It's velvety on the palate, showing flavors of dark chocolate, blackberry and a hint of cocoa that give it plenty to savor.
