A reoccurring theme woven throughout history’s most beloved narratives is the tale of the unlikely duo. The opposing personalities that unexpectedly complement each other to create something even greater than the sum of their parts. There is implicit beauty in opposites attracting and it inspired us to create a wine that embodied this anomaly. We are captivated by the human truth that we are ultimately more similar than we are different. We felt that a dog and a bird made the unlikeliest of friends and from there, Dixie and Bass was born.
BASS: Share it with friends and family? But it's from Red Mountain! DIXIE: Are you saying you'd just keep it all for yourself? BASS: Red Mountain Reserve is like red Ferrari automobiles. And if I had one — which I don't — would I let my friends drive it? DIXIE: You won't let your friends drive your '76 Gremlin. BASS: I'd let you drive it. DIXIE: I'd rather walk.
Grapes were delicatley hand picked, destemmed and fermented on the skins
for ten days before being aged for 18 months in New American Oak.
Bright red cherry on the nose with savory, dried herb, hints of kola nut and espresso. Round and generous on the palate, with generous tannins framing the mid palate and a pleasing, fruit driven finish.
Enjoy with smoked tofu, stuffed portobello mushrooms, or braised beef shortribs.
