Notes form the Curator
This bold 2016 Sonoma County Red Wine is an authoritative blend of Petite Sirah, Cabernet Sauvignon, Grenache, Syrah, Petite Verdot, Mission and Cabernet Franc. This robust wine opens with arresting aromas of black plum and cassis mingled with notes of brambleberry and star anise. Rich flavors of raspberry and blackberry are complemented with notes of dark chocolate and a touch of soft baking spice. Well-balanced acidity and polished tannins lead to a superbly long finish.
The Sheriff is best paired with gamey meats, beef and poultry. Dishes such as Hungarian goulash or a hearty pan-grilled steak go well with this too.
The Sheriff is actually created in honor of the first Sheriff of the County of San Diego, Agoston Haraszthy who spent a good number of years pursuing “purple gold”— the perfect for terroir of fine wines. He found it in Sonoma County where he established Buena Vista Winery in 1857. This wine honors his pioneering legacy in law enforcement and winegrowing, as well as all of those individuals who protect and serve the communities of California. Like the men and women who are elected to serve their counties, this wine has a robust magnetism that commands a room (or dinner table) and bridges the gap between traditional and extraordinary.
Store unopened red wines in a cool, dry, and dark place safe from constant vibration. Keep your bottle horizontal in a wine rack or cellar to retain the moistness of the cork. The ideal temperature for storage is between 16 to 18°C. Once opened, a bottle will be good for 3 to 5 days standing upright in the refrigerator.
