Pillars of Hercules Giguiere Estate Red Blend
This unique blend of three Estate Grown reds shows off its robust pedigree in the deep, dark purple color. The aromas are a lush mix of fresh blue fruit, chocolate and crushed violets. Juicy, mouthwatering flavors of blackberry, blueberry and sweet oak mingle with back notes of earthiness and pepper spice and fine, dusty tannins that coat the palate.
This intense and racy blend has enough balance and complexity to enjoy on its own as an aperitif. It is also a great choice to pair with baby back ribs, Korean short ribs and anything with a rich barbeque sauce.
Blend: 63% Petite Sirah, 24% Petit Verdot, 13% Teroldego

Strong, muscular, massive. Words that define Hercules when he planted two pillars astride the parting of the Straits of Gibraltar opening the old world to the new. When Matchbook set out to create a bold wine, they chose to base their Pillars on the pillars of flavor from the Dunnigan Hills: Petite Sirah, Petit Verdot and Teroldego. This is a chewy, dense, full-bodied blend for those seeking a big red wine.16
