Tasting notes

Baba is what Ruby and Stella called Kelly’s Mom (Sarah) when she became their Grandmother. It is also our stunning Super Tuscan blend. The 2017 is a single vineyard offering sourced from our friend Dick Boushey’s home vineyard in Grandview. The 2017 Baba is charming, nuanced, elegant and haunting. Flowers float out of the glass - roses, violets, honeysuckle - with notes of sandalwood, smoke, tart cherries, orange peel and dried herbs. A truly versatile wine that has a deep spirit and a colorful personality, like its namesake. 

Food pairing: Sarah’s eggplant parmesan or Sarah’s eggplant parmesan.
Movie pairing: Gone with the Wind

FOUNDERS’ NOTES:
Our first extry Tuscan was produced in 2015 as a wine club exclusive. The Brunello clone of Sangiovese was sourced from Boushey Vineyard in the Yakima Valley. Once the fermentation was dry we loaded the press, turned La Traviata up to eleven, busted up some lasagne and Brunello di Montalcino and let Elvis the Press do the rest. Lovely red fruit and flowers flowers flowers.
