Don’t Exit! Our amimated blend is at the Stage where it is drinkable now, or may be Left for a few years. Either way, its aromas of raspberries and blackberries, and flavors of currants and nutmeg will Snaggle your Puss any time. Heavens to MURGATROYD!

Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
With a name like “Murgatroyd” you might expect this wine to smell and taste like a pink mountain lion. While this wine is as dry and intense as a night in the desert, and its spice and herbal aromas might be the result of a romp in the sagebrush, nothing could be further from the truth. Bright aromas of raspberry and red currant, and full fruit flavors of raspberries, cassis and black cherry, are certainly nothing like a pink mountain lion. Then again... why is he pink?
Vineyard Notes
38% Mourvedre from the Tanner Vineyard
38% Tempranillo from Rolleri Vineyard
24% Petit Verdot from the Tanner Vineyard
Food Pairing Notes
Murginade! Marinade tri-tip in Murgatroyd, soy sauce, ginger, honey. Anything with a big marinara sauce - stinky cheeses or a nice cigar Lamb Osso Bucco? Heavens to Murgatroyd! Asian style marinated Flank Steak, served over a bed of angel hair pasta with horseradish cream.

Just tried at the tasting; we're saving the actual wine when we have friends over. Really, really like the name!
