Why we love it:
Who: Post & Vine is the dream of Rebekah Wineburg and Erica Kincaid who met years ago while working at a Napa Valley winery. They desired to produce wines that reflect a sense of place with a focus on small historical vineyards that have been managed sustainably by committed stewards. Both with day jobs making high end Napa Cabernets, Post & Vine was created to make wines meant to be shared with friends and opened for any occasion.
What/How: Truly a field blend in which all the grapes are grown together, harvested together and fermented together from 60 plus year old vines.
Tasting Notes: The wine shows expressive notes of wild strawberry and blackberry, pomegranate and blood orange peel, hints of clove and cardamom, and undertones of lilacs and rose petals with medium bodied tannin and a mineral core. Pairs With: Grilled pork chops, roasted chicken with mushrooms and cassoulet.
