Recipe NotesAbout the Suggested Wine Pairing Our Fog Vineyards 2013 California Valley Mist Blend was produced primarily in Suisun Valley. This blend of Petite Sirah and Zinfandel has developed in maturity due to its fi rst phase of ageing. Retaining a wine for a period of time before bottling allows for more expression of flavors. The nose is fairly aggressive with intense aromas of dark cherry, blackberry and toasted oak. This red blend is chewy in the attack and powerful with quite a bit of tannins. The finish has a syrupy consistency almost like the texture of honey. Learn more about the benefits of the WineShop At Home Artisan Collection Wine Club.
