A special dark red, loaded with lip-puckering flavor - from a region you'll love

    • This is a stick-to-your-ribs Petite Sirah from a winemaker with a pristine reputation for predicting the “next big thing…” like this cool-climate mega-red from Suisun and Mendocino.
    • His name is Rudy von Strasser – he’s the founder of Napa’s prestigious Diamond Mountain AVA. His historic Napa winery and tasting room just got bought out, so he needs to find a new way to show the world his wines...

    • Enter Alex & Ryan – two Naked HQ winemakers in charge of sniffing out unique wine opportunities. With your funding, they swooped up a new incredible wine!  “We passed all those beautiful vineyards and thought, we gotta do this,” says Ryan. You’ve gotta taste it!

Aging advice
Open this wine today and you'll enjoy freshness and dark, ripe fruit and lip-puckering tannin right up front. If you age it until 2020 it will mellow out and become the kind of wine you can sit back and relax with

Serving advice
Ryan likes to talk in an old timey radio announcer voice when he opens this wine and says "Alex and Ryan Present... Rudy von Strasser! We recommend decanting for 30-45 minutes!"

Local food match
BBQ tri-tip (or a clean grilled sirloin tip steak) and some herb-crusted grilled eggplant
