General Info:

Tinto Moderno is our take on a blend of several classic Portuguese varieties native to the Douro River Valley. The field blend includes a proprietary mixture of Touriga Nacional, Touriga Francesa, Alvarelhão, Tinta Roriz, and Souzao. The blend is Touriga Nacional forward, and all of the grapes come from the Alta Mesa AVA in the Lodi area.

Tasting Notes:

With the combination of all of these unique varieties, aromas of blueberries predominate as they are intermingled with raspberries and cherries; a sprinkling of violets and vanilla uplift the other aromas and add complexity. The wine has a gently soft palate like many California Pinot Noirs, and clean acidity.

Food Pairings:

This wine pairs very deftly with pan seared or grilled salmon, pork tenderloin with brown butter and sage, coq au vin, and even grilled Portobello mushrooms with herbed butter.
