- The strength and
rigor required to farm the steep slopes of the Langhe hills
is legendary. This dramatic landscape, iconic of northern
Italy’s Piedmont region, would stress and fatigue many growers.
This delightful Arneis features a heady perfume of apricot
and flowers, with a luscious texture balanced by crisp acidity
and mineral notes. Pair with the “Crostini with Prosciutto
di Parma” from our Wines
by Jennifer® Cookbook!
- The fruit for this
sprightly Weissburgunder (Pinot Blanc) comes from Rheinhessen
vineyards that are carved out of volcanic hills. It is blossomy
with a bounty of crisp white peach and apricot flavors. Lively
and light-footed, it's an invigorating thirst quencher finishing
on a zesty spray of lime and mineral.
- Born from a unique
terroir, the essence of this wine comes from the volcanic
soils of Sicily's Mount Etna, one of the most important wine
regions in Italy. The wine is made from Nerello Cappuccio
Mascalese, among the island’s most widely grown varieties.
It is characterized by great freshness, superior aging potential,
and exceptional drinkability.
- Fruit is sourced
from the east side of Paso Robles, where the vines get a
lot of sunlight and substantial heat. Green bell pepper,
barbecue seasonings, and jammy, black plum aromas. Medium-bodied,
with hints of blackberry and chocolate flavors. Smooth, silky
tannins add balance and structure to the lingering finish.
Pair alongside garlic and spinach-stuffed chicken meatballs
or beef tenderloin with braised red cabbage.
- This crazy California
blend contains nine varietals: Cabernet
Syrah, Cabernet Sauvignon, Grenache, Mouvedre,
Malbec, Petit Verdot, and Barbera. This exceptionally
dark-hued wine captures your attention right out of the bottle,
with its meaty aromatics full of dark fruits and pepper.
The finely grained and textured palate is full of dark chocolate,
berry pie, and white pepper notes wonderfully framed by sturdy
- This beautiful
Barossa Valley Shiraz shows intense
aromatics of blood plums and brambly dark berry fruit. Subtle
oak notes of sumac and lavender are woven with fresh,
plump, and supple dark berry fruit that show strength
and liveliness all the way through the finish. It's a natural
for good ole KC BBQ!

Syrah, Sirah, Shiraz!
Inky is a word
it is redolent
of a leather-bound
This sauvage Rhône
region, and is
Sirah (similar name, often confused with,
and a distant cousin to Syrah)
In France in the late 1800s,
a botanist named Dr. François
Durif crossed the rare Peloursin
grape with Syrah and named
the resulting grape after himself:
Durif. Shortly thereafter,
it was brought
to the United States, specifically
California, where it has thrived
under the name Petite Sirah.
Sirah produces inky, dark,
purple colored wines that offer
flavors of black pepper, blackberries,
spice and licorice. Petite
Sirah wines are often intense,
chewy, masculine wines when
they are young,
providing massive amounts of
tannin and high levels of acidity.
Wines made from Petite Sirah
and improve for decades.
California Petite Sirah has bold aromas of
boysenberry, blackberry, and fig jam that greet
you in the nose.
aromas lead to
a medium palate with a core
of juicy fruit flavors, toasted hazelnut
and baking spice notes. The wine
spends 10 months in a combination
of French and Hungarian oak, resulting in
firm yet well-integrated tannins.
The modern Shiraz grape was brought to Australia
by James Busby, the father of Australian wine.
Busby travelled through Spain and France collecting
vine cuttings that were the foundation of the Australian
wine industry. Despite being genetically identical
to Syrah, the Shiraz grape tastes and looks different
compared to its European and American siblings,
especially when grown in warm climates. Shiraz
is the top varietal planted in Australia. The name
is an homage to the (false) legend that the grape
originated in the ancient Iranian Persian city
of the same name.
Barossa Valley Shiraz has intense aromas of
blood plums and brambly dark berry fruit
notes. A fresh,
plump, supple attack of dark berry fruit
rolls though deep into the palate,
still showing strength and
liveliness all the way through to the finish.
Serve with game meats fresh
off, what else, the barbie!
