Tasting notes

Gaga is the name of Chris’s Mom when she is playing Grandmother for Stella and Ruby. It’s also our beautiful Touriga Nacional from Upland Estate on Snipes Mountain layered with a pinch of Petite Sirah. Which delivers this big, rich, silky dark beauty, all muscular and ripped. Aromas and flavors of violets, cocoa, blackberry, tobacco, roasted herbs and vanilla are well balanced and persist through an everlasting finish. Like a Grandmother’s love, this wine is complete and full. A seriously limited special offering for our Ring of Fire Wine Club members.

We started tinkering with Portuguese varietals in 2010 in order to produce a fortified dessert wine, primarily for winemaker dinners. By 2012 we experimented with a dry Ring of Fire Touriga Nacional for our wine club. Bam. So good we did again in 2014 and 2015. All kinds of earthy rich aromatic goodness.
