Rebellious Red Wine

Pull out your favorite bread and cheese, and get ready to celebrate National Grilled Cheese Day. I have armed myself with my trusty cast-iron skillet and will be prepping a cheddar and sourdough batard grilled sandwich today. My secret is a few drops of truffle oil on the cheese and a brush of mayo outside the bread instead of butter for a superbly crispy crust. I have selected a bottle of the just-released Rebellious Red Wine Blend to wash down this gooey deliciousness. This medley of Zinfandel, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Syrah, Mourvedre, Petite Sirah, Malbec, and Sauvignon Blanc from the North Coast of California complements the grilled cheddar with its jammy black cherry, strawberry, and warm spice notes of licorice, black pepper, cardamom on the palate


Sonoma & Mendocino / California


44% Zinfandel, 23% Cabernet Sauvignon, 8% Merlot, 7% Syrah, 7% Mourvedre, 7% Petite Sirah, 3% Malbec, 1% Sauvignon Blanc


Tasting Notes

Aromas of dark cherry and strawberry jam, brown sugar, dark chocolate, and cola with hints of cardamom, black pepper, sandalwood and licorice. The bright and vibrant entry accentuates flavors of fresh blueberries and allspice that linger into a creamy, rich mid-palate and ends with a luxurious finish.

Food Match

This vibrant blend is bursting with flavors that pair well with grilled foods including saucy baby back ribs, grilled vegetables, or a juicy burger with cheddar. The spicy fruit flavors also complement braised short ribs and roast turkey with sausage stuffing.
