WHEREAS: The Ministry of the Vinterior is now supplying per annum wine rations to the general population.
The Ministry pledges to work tirelessly on behalf of its loyal subjects, scrutinizing wine regions and vineyards the world over, selecting only those which meet the Ministry's rigorous demands for quality, value and regional authenticity. As well as, and of course, an allegiance to the Party of the Vinterior in that vintage year.
HENCEFORTH, Ministry subjects are assured of complete satisfaction with superior quality wine rations which may come from as close to home as Sonoma but as far reaching as Mendoza, Bordeaux or beyond.
Delicate orange zest aromas open into stone fruit and pears. On the palate, this wine is full and lush with a nod to acidity that is great for pairing with many foods. Restrained oak provides a warm vanilla backdrop and softness, while the acidity lifts balances the richness through the long finish. --Chris Nickolopoulos and Elijah Pfister, négociants.
Grapes have been planted in six counties that comprise the North Coast AVA since the early 1800s, making it one of the United States’ oldest wine-growing regions. Possessing several microclimates that centuries of farming have allowed to be analyzed and fully understood, the area produces many noted varieties of Caber- net Sauvignon, Pinot Noir, Merlot, Syrah, Zinfandel and, of course, Chardonnay. The fruit for this vintage was sourced from vinyard locations in NapaValley,SonomaValley and SuisunValley AVAs and blended for a perfectly balanced finished wine.
Food Pairing Notes
The Ministers often enjoy a glass of this vintage at the close of the day, or with creamy cheeses, crab and shell- fish, chicken and especially their favorite, mac and cheese.
