Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
Even though it’s fortified with Brandy, this is a pleasantly soft wine with an aromatic structure rich with candied apricots, dates and figs, followed by hints of anise and coffee. On the palate notes of typical Mediterranean herbs and spices, with white sage and rosemary in the forefront.
Winemaker Notes
During his exile on Elba, the Aleatico wines of the island became a favorite drink of Napoleon and he was reported to have said that they were his only consolation during this time. Aleatico is a dark-skinned member of the extensive Muscat family of grapes, believed to be the oldest family of Vitis vinifera in the world. We are excited to release our first vintage of Aleatico which is grown in our vineyards on Rancho California and Anza Road.
Food Pairing Notes
The perfect pairing for this wine is with dry sweets like almond- biscuits or a Pear and Almond Tart, also to be enjoyed at the end of a meal with a fine cigar.
