Our 2017 Portrait of a Mutt Red Blend is made up of three grapes - Grenache, Syrah and Mourvedre.  This magical combination of grapes originates from the Southern Rhone region in France; it is also a mainstay in Australia where the Aussie's call it "GSM".  What is so special about these three grapes is how they play off of each other.  Grenache provides lush berry fruit a soft palette; Syrah contributes red and black fruits, smoke, bacon and pepper spice; and Mourvedre provides the backbone of dark fruit, meaty flavors and tannins.   Combined they produce a full flavored, robust red wine that we love to drink.

It’s all about the fruit.  For her “Dog Series” wines, Brenda has one goal in mind - create fruit-forward wines with varietally true aromatics, mid palette weight and flavor, and a full bodied and balanced finish.   Brenda sources her fruit from a variety of appellations within California always letting the quality of the fruit drive her selections. Her travels always seem to have stops in beach towns for a cold beer at the local pub, which she claims are an equally important part of her winemaking.

Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
Aromas of red and black fruits are followed by hints of pepper spice and perhaps thyme. The wine has a plush entry of jammy, soft fruit yet has nice acidity and tannins in the finish. Robust, full flavored, supple and tasty.
Food Pairing Notes
Our 2017 Portrait of a Mutt is best paired with moderate to heavy dishes. We love it with grilled or barbecued red meats. And the wine also shines with hearty sauces that include spices and herbs such as rosemary, sage, thyme and red pepper.
