Today’s Thirsty Thursday features come to us from Motto Wines, offering a new take on California winemaking from the perspective of the renowned winemaking team at Ste. Michelle Wine Estates. Known for producing some of the best-selling wines from Washington State, they’ve branched out by using their Washington process but implementing California grapes, resulting in deliciously unique products!
Today we are featuring not just one, but TWO of their offerings:
MOTTO Gung Ho Red Blend 2014
This red blend is full of contrast — rich, yet delicate; fruity, yet structured. Soft floral aromas give way to flavors of blueberry pie and pomegranate with hints of jasmine tea and spice. Perfect along or with a wide variety of foods.
Blend: 45% Cabernet Sauvignon, 33% Petit Verdot, 12% Petite Sirah, 10% Zinfandel
MOTTO Backbone Cabernet Sauvignon 2014 (supplies limited)
This Cabernet Sauvignon has both backbone and elegance, with a soft and delicate nose of ripe red fruit. Dark, concentrated flavors of red plum, caramel and bright raspberry explode out of the glass for a lasting finish.
Blend: 90% Cabernet Sauvignon, 10 % Petite Sirah
