Wine Wednesday: Campesino, 2013 Baybos, Sonoma Valley


"A gourmet meal without a glass of wine just seems tragic to me somehow."

-Kathy Mattea

This Week: Campesino, 2013 Baybos, Sonoma Valley

About Campesino:

Campesino is owned by Macario and Griselda Montoya, in the Sonoma Valley. Macario, the winemaker behind the label, grew up in the small town of Elmira, which is in close proximity to the Napa Valley. After working for six years in the corporate world as a financial adviser, Macario decided to begin creating wine. Marcario's philosophy on winemaking is fairly simple: "Wines are an expression of the earth and are made in the vineyard. It's the job of the winemaker to finish the process."

Tasting Notes:

This red Rhône blend is made up of Grenache, Mourvedre and Syrah. Aromas of black and blue fruits are intermingled with wild spice, while grilled meats leap from the glass. This wine has flavors of wildness, scorched earth, black licorice, roasted herbs and freshly baked blueberry pie.

Pairings:

At the girl & the fig we’d recommend pairing Campesino, 2013 Baybos with our Cast Iron Prime New York Strip (roasted radishes, Meyer lemon salsa verde).

At home try it with roasted chicken and vegetables.

Cheers!
