Some grapes are naturally higher in pigment and they result in deep, dark wines that are nearly opaque. These four “black beauties” are bold, powerful, and seductive.
Malbec is a favorite for its intense berry flavors and deep violet color. Our Malbec comes from sunny vineyards in California, but you can also find this grape thriving in the high-altitude region of Mendoza, in Argentina.
There is nothing petite about Petite Sirah other than the size of the grapes! Those tiny grapes deliver an intense flavor of black pepper and powerful dark fruit. One of the darkest wines produced, Petite Sirah is a showstopper.
Shiraz is the name for Syrah in Australia, and the warm Barossa Valley produces the boldest, most powerful styles of this inky wine. Loaded with exotic spices and the blackest of black fruits, the finish is pure vanilla and black pepper wrapped in love.
Bringing these dark beauties together into a cohesive blend takes a skilled winemaker. We have combined Petit Verdot, Petite Sirah, and Shiraz with a little Cabernet Sauvignon and Barbera to showcase the essence of the darkest grapes.
