U.S.A. > California > Sierra Foothills

The Queen of the Sierra Red Estate Blend was grown in the Rorick Heritage Vineyard in Calaveras County at 600m elevation. Composed primarily of Zinfandel, Barbera, Tempranillo, Trousseau Noir, and Mondeuse, the Queen shows all of the aromatic complexity and textural presence that are the hallmarks of Forlorn Hope. This cuvée presents a compelling dynamic tension between its bright, forward fruit and the supple tannins and lively acidity that make up this wine’s backbone.

On the nose, brightly floral with ripe strawberry and cherry aromas.

On the palate, very juicy with loads of brightness and smooth tannins around the edges. High acidity brings an edge and vibrancy to the wine.

A hugely diverse wine, this red has endless potential. Enjoy with a slight chill in the park or serve as an apéritif for an afternoon get-together. It's pairings are also boundless, though we think it's delightful alongside grilled chicken with herbs.

All fruit for this estate red was hand-picked; fermentation was allowed to begin spontaneously with native yeast.

Most lots were fermented separately due to different pick dates. All lots were pressed at dryness, averaging 14-21 days total time on the skins, and placed into neutral 227L barrique.
After racking they remained in a combination of neutral oak and stainless steel until being bottled unfined and unfiltered.

As with all Forlorn Hope wines, no new oak is utilized, and nothing was added to the must or wine (no cultured yeast, ML bacteria, water, tartaric acid, enzymes, nutrients, etc) with the exception of minimal effective SO2.
