Wine of the Month – with WINEBOW

 

We are delighted to be partnering with the outstanding wine  importer and distributor Winebow, who state that their business of wine and spirits is ultimately about people. They value long-term relationships and are honored to have worked with some producers, customers and colleagues for decades. Their quoted  mission is to be the most sought-after national importer and distributor of fine wines and spirits from around the world. By offering a dynamic portfolio and a robust national platform, coupled with a team of dedicated specialists they strive to be the best partner to their suppliers and customers. Each month we will be bringing you some amazing wines that may have escaped your attention or are new to market. The wines are selected by one of the Winebow  dedicated specialists, Tony Azzollini.

This month we are featuring GHOSTRUNNER UNGRAFTED RED.

Here comes the Sommelier stuff: The Ghostrunner red blend includes Syrah, Petite Syrah, and Zinfandel. It shows a dark ruby color with an aroma that’s rich in mixed berries and black cherry preserves. Hints of spice including black pepper and bacon carry through on the palate. This decadent red blend finishes with soft tannins, dark fruit and elaborate oak.

What does Tony like about Ghostrunner. Quite simply the depth of flavor, cellared and bottled by Lodi California,  positioned between the San Francisco Bay and the Sierra Nevada mountain range, the Lodi appellation, while relatively far inland, is able to maintain a classic Mediterranean climate featuring warm, sunny days and cool evenings, which makes for an amazing wine. It also has really cool label!

Hints & Tips

  • Good wine does not have to be expensive.
  • Expensive wine is not always good
  • Look beyond the usual suspects – Merlot – Chardonnay – Cabernet.
  • Instead maybe try Petite Syrah – Albarino or many other less well-known varietals
