2017 Stanley Groovy

THE STORY

Who is Stanley Groovy? Some describe him as a delightful, yet ordinary looking guy. Those who know him better portray him as more complex than he lets on, with a hidden “groovy” mentality and presence. These are apt descriptors for our ‘mascot’ here at The Walls, but also describe the wine we named after him. This blend of intriguing red Iberian varietals from Red Mountain, is named Stanley Groovy because just like Stanley, this wine has a groovy way about it, so “groovy” you will never confuse it with any other wine.

TASTING NOTES

An expressive nose of red fruit, tobacco and anise seed leads to flavors of black raspberry, cranberry, orange oil and cinnamon. This blend has a nicely integrated acidity and a long finish. While still true to Its Portuguese varietal roots, the 2017 blend also Incorporates some Red Mountain Syrah and Mourvedre. They lend It additional complexity and length without compromising Its trademark food pairing versatility and alcohol restraint.

PAIRING NOTES

Italian sausage pizza, pasta with red sauce.
