We’ve been eager to try this bottle from Martha Stoumen Wines after hearing so many wonderful reviews. 📝
We decided to pop and pair it with pesto pasta and grilled chicken, as we thought the vibrant, fruit-driven notes would complement the savory herbs and garlic flavors of the pesto. We also thought the flavor intensities would match up pretty well. It’s delicious! 🙌
This California wine has 54% Carignan and 46% Zinfandel, which were dry-farmed in Mendocino County and Oakley, respectively. 🍇 Martha Stoumen Wines pursues a low-intervention approach to farming the land and the resulting wines are known to be terroir-driven.
We gave this wine a slight chill before serving, which enhanced the freshness, and then enjoyed the evolution as the wine opened up. It is unfiltered and has a delicately hazy, pale purple appearance. 👁 This wine offers primary notes of black cherry, wild strawberry, pomegranate, violet, lavender, anise, also secondary notes of clove, nutmeg, and cinnamon. 👃 👄
We love the label art – it’s super joyful and beautiful! It was fun to learn that Martha Stoumen’s husband, Jon Patch, created this illustration and named it ‘post flirtation’ just after they had started dating. 💕💕

A wine as bubbly as it’s label. It’s the friend that puts you in a good mood simply because you’re going to hang out, and you haven’t even met up yet.
Low alcohol and easy to sip or chug, no party fouls included. It’s not low on flavor—pineapple and juicy Granny Smith, a little bit of butter bread, and some Haribo peachy-o-yeses. Don’t let the sweet scare you, let it warm up a little bit from its chill chill mega chill and it smooths out like a summer sunset. — 8 days ago
