2020 Nomini Hall
The first fruit harvested from Strother Family Vineyards. Medium to full bodied fruit forward red with a distinct round, juicy texture. The presence of new oak is most distinct on the nose, where toasted notes and vanilla can be found. Lots of red fruit flavors like sweet cherry, strawberry, and watermelon dominate the front and mid palates. Well integrated oak tannins give the wine a light, lingering finish. A beautiful deep ruby color. This is an extremely versatile wine in terms of food pairing – its tannin structure and oak backbone give it enough body to stand up to red meat, and it pairs excellently with lamb. Being a fruit forward red with a solid acidity, it also pairs extremely well light lighter dishes, particularly tomato and vegetable based dishes and veal, duck, and pork.
