Las Jaras Nouveau Slipper Sippers
A Nouveau is born! Nouveau is the name given to the first wine of the vintage. The style originated out of Beaujolais, just south of Burgundy where they make wines from Gamay. This Nouveau is a California nod to that tradition but is made from a blend of Valdiguie, Zinfandel, Petite Sirah, and Sangiovese. The wine is mega delicious. It has a nose full of blackberry, plum and cocoa. There are gobs of black plum, chocolate covered cherry, and boysenberry. The palate is juicy and zippy with really balanced acidity. On the finish is cocoa powder-like tannin that keeps the wine fresh as you sip.
