Our 2012 Rubáiyat perfectly reflects its constituent parts, with pinot noir dominating the nose, syrah on display in the mid-palate, and the spiciness of zinfandel enlivening the finish. The wine boasts wonderfully fresh and fragrant ripe cherry, dark plum, and blackberry aromas accompanied by scents of lavender and dark chocolate. On the full-bodied palate, rich and juicy dark cherry, plum, elderberry and blackberry flavors segue into a long, savory finish showcasing briary spice tones. Rubáiyat’s lavish fruit and supple tannins make it a wonderful accompaniment to a broad spectrum of hearty foods, from grilled burgers, steaks and spicy sausages to barbecued ribs and chicken, and rich, tomato-based pastas.
