Wine Description

Tasting Notes: Organic Agriculturist comprises a delicious blend of Carignane, Merlot, and Syrah grapes. These traditional Rhone varietals are processed without added sugars, acids, or preservatives, creating a fruit-forward California-grown red wine.
Our overall pursuit with Organic Agriculturist was to blend an exceptionally food-friendly wine. A spicy, aromatic nose gives way to damson plum and plush berry tones on the palate. The firm structure and grippy tannins of the Carignane and Syrah provide a wellbalanced backbone for savory roasted meats, while the softness of the Merlot informs a delicate touch that would compliment vegetarian cuisine. Aged with a touch of French oak, the wine has a lingering cedary finish along with a hint of allspice that makes this a perfect holiday choice.
Pairs well with spice-crusted rack of lamb, caramelized shallots and roasted root vegetables, or a fennel and blood-orange salad.
