2018 EL RATON
Our love for Sangiovese continues with this flagship wine called El Raton.
94% Sangiovese from Phillips Family Vineyard makes the base for this easy drinker. The 6% Petit Verdot comes from La Pradera Vineyard and builds the mid palate body and lots of extra color.
Extra aging in neutral french oak barrels made this wine ready to drink with no need for any bottle aging.
The image on the front label is inspired by Lotería, a game I grew up playing, so it serves as an homage to my upbringing. And if you’ve ever played Lotería you might recognize the pinto bean markers on the back.
Our easy-drinking El Raton pairs well with a multitude of foods from pasta and pizza to the more casual cheese and meat board. We find it pairs best with a puzzle.
