Purple Love

This wine is a super juicy, food-friendly, delicious wine that we’re all crazy about. Quantity is limited so we encourage you to partake of this wonderful wine, before we sell out.

Our Operatives loved the Sapphire Hill wine that we showcased earlier this year. We’ve had so many Operative requests for another Sapphire wine that our Intrepid Agent Red reached out for another one.

Today’s Sapphire Hill 2013 ‘The Apostle’ Alexander Valley Zinfandel Blend is a juicy and elegant wine that we heartily recommend.

Bold, juicy aromas waft from the glass, with blueberry preserve, black cherry juice, blackberry jam, dark spice, oak, dark chocolate and black pepper.

Incredibly juicy, with layer upon layer of blackberry, blueberry, black cherry, cherry bark, mocha, oak, plum, baker’s chocolate, blackberry tobacco, dried fall leaves, bramble and black pepper.

Winemaker Tammi Collins brings her many years of experience to bear on today’s wine. Tammi has honed her craft at the likes of Blackstone Winery, Leasingham Winery, Dunnewood, Chateau Felice and De La Montanya. Today she gives her expertise to Sapphire Hill - where she makes her distinctive, handcrafted wines.

We purchased every last case of this fantastic wine - but supply is limited. Reserve yours soon.

Tasting Profile

Look:

Deep, dark purple with a slightly opaque core. A sharp line of garnet runs a ring around the wine glass. Thick, slow-moving tears move leisurely down the glass wall.

Smell:

Blueberry preserve, black cherry juice, blackberry jam, dark spice, oak, dark chocolate and black pepper.

Taste:

Blackberry, blueberry, black cherry, cherry bark, mocha, oak, plum, baker’s chocolate, blackberry tobacco, dried fall leaves, bramble and black pepper.

Finish:

Extra juicy and very long, with dark fruit flavors fading first, giving way to mocha, tobacco, pepper and chocolate.

Pairing:

This is an excellent BBQ wine. We’ll enjoy ours with a juicy grilled steak.
