Armando Bonarda 2020

‘Raise your glass’ to Estela Armando and her grandfather’s half-century old Bonarda vineyard. This wine is fresh with notes of red raspberry and smoky oak.

Tasting Notes

Intense ruby color with bright aromas of fresh red & black raspberries and subtle smoky oak notes. The flavor of freshly-crushed raspberries is echoed on the palate, along with notes of leather, dark chocolate, and a touch sandalwood on the finish. Though quite rich and hedonistic, the seamless structure of this wine makes it a candidate for drinking in its youth or over the next few years (if you can wait that long).

Food Pairing

It will pair well with just about any foods with which you would drink Zinfandel or other fruit-driven reds.
