"A meal without wine is like a day without sun."
This Week: Donelan Wines, 2013 Cuvée Moriah Red Blend, Sonoma County
About Donelan Wines:
A small, boutique winery in Sonoma County, Donelan Wines was founded in the 1980s by Joe Donelan. After a successful corporate career in Connecticut, Joe was drawn to California's wine-making regions. He had a vision to one day create superior Rhone-varietals, and made the decision to move to California to begin his journey. Today, Donelan Wines is a family business. Joe's two sons, Tripp and Cushing, share their father's passion for creating an inviting customer experience with every bottle of Donelan Wines.
This 2013 vintage Cuvée Moriah Red Blend opens with boysenberry and açaí berry. It has a fruit purity, with pomegranate and ripe melon, ripe plum, red currant, and notes of mild oak.
At the girl & the fig we’d recommend pairing Donelan Wines, 2013 Cuvée Moriah Red Blend with our Potato Gnocchi (smoked tomato, eggplant, spinach, parmesan), or Steak Frites (6-ounce prime flat iron steak, frites, roasted garlic & herb butter).
At home try it with pork tenderloin or grilled lamb and roasted vegetables.
