Indulgent Wine and Dessert Pairings

Chocolate Chip Cookie with Red Miso Buttercream Pairs with Assemblage Blanc

With notes of Meyer lemon and wet rock minerality that jump out of the glass, yet draw you back into the round, layered focused beauty of this pairing, our 2017 Assemblage Blanc takes the…cookie in this exceptional pairing.

Salted Caramel Pie Pairs with Grenache

Salted Caramel Pie just screams out for our 2015 Reserve Grenache which brings subtle notes of plum and rose petal that harmoniously blend with the salted caramel, vanilla, and mocha nuances. Concentrated, yet shy. The flavors envelop the palate with a velvety texture and balanced tannins.

Bacon-Bourbon Brownies and Petite Sirah

Something this big needs a wine that will win a bar fight. Welcome to the fray 2016 Captain Joe Reserve Petite Sirah. Off the chart richness with aromas of crushed black fruit with subtle hints of roasted coffee. This Petite is no small feat. Round and rich, offering flavors of cassis and toasty oak, with tannins that will last for days…..or at least through your brownie.
