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.

Tasting Notes:

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.
