Tasting Notes

This unique blend of three Estate Grown reds shows off its robust pedigree in the deep, dark purple color. The aromatics are a beautiful mix of violets, dense black fruit, and chocolate. Juicy flavors of blueberry, boysenberry and blackberry jam are a nice counterpoint to the toasty oak and racy black pepper notes. The texture is full and viscous and hangs around for a long finish.

Production Notes

Strong, muscular, massive. Words that define Hercules when he planted two pillars astride the parting of the Strait of Gibraltar opening the old world to the new. When Matchbook set out to create a powerhouse wine, we chose to base our Pillars on the pillars of strength from the Dunnigan Hills: Petite Sirah, Petit Verdot and Teroldego. This is a chewy, dense, full-bodied blend for those seeking a big red wine.

Pairings

This bold red blend has enough balance and complexity to enjoy on its own as an aperitif. It is also a great choice to pair with baby back ribs, slow-roasted lamb shanks, or grilled veggies tossed with a rich romesco sauce.
