Profile

Smell

Sweet carnival cotton candy, mocha and tobacco notes dive into a perfumed potpourri bouquet of wild rose, peony and hibiscus flowers and dried herbs with a hint of toasted bread and baking spices.

Taste

Ripe wild red raspberry, strawberry, cherry and dragon fruit notes dominate with a fresh acidity and tangy cranberry quality. Lovely earthiness of potting soil and forest floor notes with a savoury mushroom component. Beautiful finish with a hint of milk chocolate, brown sugar and cherry cola.

Pairing

Pair with mushroom risotto, chicken à l'orange, roasted quail, beef stews, Black Forest ham, bruschetta or green lentil curry.

Aromas and Flavours

Cranberry

Sweet and tart, just like the cranberry sauce at your family's Thanksgiving table.

Strawberry

A sweet, almost caramel-like aroma reminiscent of your favourite juicy, red berry.

Cherry

Fresh B.C. cherries out of the back of a truck, all eaten before you can get them home!

Herbs

Your windowsill herb garden gives off a lovely herbal smell every time you walk by.

Leaf

When was the last time you raked up all the leaves in your yard and jumped in the pile?

Description

With focus and attention put on finding the best grapes from the most prestigious cool climate vineyards in California, Gearbox strives to make wines that mimic the style of Burgundy. Much like the négociants of France where winemakers combine finding grapes from the best vineyard sites and use their skill to craft the perfect bottle of wine at an affordable price, Gearbox offers the same value and quality giving you elegance with affordability. With most of the grapes being sourced from Los Carneros, an AVA that straddles both Napa and Sonoma giving you the best of both worlds in terms of quality and finesse. Early 20th century motorcycles had gearboxes often referred to as a "jockey shifter". Riders had to take their hand off the handlebar in a risky maneuver to switch gears. This was a unique technique that required skill and is reminiscent of the way these wines are made. The winemaker uses unique techniques combined with skill to craft the perfect wine. Enjoy now or in 5 years from now at a temperature of 18 ºC.
