The Bull, Piedra Roja Vineyard, Red Wine, Sierra Foothills 2014
Once again, winemaker Derek Irwin delivers a killer wine for an amazing price. The Bull is a hard charging blend of 40% Tempranillo, 22% Malbec, 20% Petite Sirah and 18% Syrah. You'll be politely stampeded by flavors and aromas of blackberries, pomegranate and black plums. Combined with very balanced acid and moderate tannins, The Bull is a perfect match for beef stew, brisket and just about anything that fits on your grill. 13.8% alc. Only 500 cases produced.
Irwin learned the winemaking ropes at Cosentino Winery in Napa Valley after graduating from UC Davis. He then moved on to lead the winemaking and vineyard managing at Viansa in Sonoma. Derek now owns and leads Piola Wines and Madura Consulting where he continues to make his stunning wines in the Sierra Foothills as well as consult for many clients in Napa and Sonoma.
