Tasting notes

Gaga is what Stella and Ruby call Chris’s Mom in her role as Grandmother. It’s also our lovely Touriga Nacional blend from the Yakima Valley. The 2017 is sultry, smoky, earthy and complex. Concentrated orange liqueur leads to a palate is loaded with dark chocolate, blackberry, cedar, tobacco, dried herbs and vanilla. Firm but silky tannins are well integrated and persist through a long ass finish. Gaga is full and complete...like a Grandmother’s love. 

Food Pairing: PJ's World-Famous-In-Our-Family Tomato Pie

Movie pairing: West Side Story

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.
