"There are complex layers of Christmas spice, blackcap raspberry, and cinnamon that open up to vanilla and spice mid-palate. For the big red wine lovers, the Syrah is bold and fruity with our soulful estate Pinot Noir.” - Winemaker, Don Crank III
Food Pairing Notes
Grilled vegetables, duck, and tofu pair nicely with this bottle. Try it with a plum chutney recipe served with any oven-roasted poultry. Better yet, add a generous schmear to a turkey sandwich but hold the mayo. BBQ spare ribs, braised beef, or a good old-fashioned burger are excellent companions for The Whale. Hard, aged cheeses like Gouda, sharp cheddar, or Gruyere set out with breadsticks and crisp crackers make for a simple, upscale happy hour spread.
