Our Estate Stone Soup Blend combines our red grape varietals grown in the rockiest of soils on our home ranch. We harvest these grapes, hand-sort, and co-ferment to create a uniquely beautiful field blend. This technique has been used for centuries to create more complexity and structure, making for a noticeably superior wine. Stone Soup seemed like the perfect name for this luscious red wine, given the stone-strewn soils from which it came. By blending the best of Old and New World wine styles, we strive to produce the finest wines.
Our Stone Soup release is always an exciting one! This vintage combines Zinfandel, Grenache, Petite Sirah and Syrah with the percentages balanced to make an incredibly sophisticated wine. The aromatics boast ripe blackberry, boysenberry, and black pepper with a pronounced oak, vanilla, and toast profile. The flavors exude big blackberry, black currant, chocolate, and spice. This is an earthy, luscious wine on the finish with notable tannins to balance this big, fruit-forward style.
We love Stone Soup with tomato-based hearty stews, sweet potato pie, mac and cheese, meaty pasta dishes and charcuterie and cheese boards.
