Latah Creek Natalie's Nectar 2018

BACKGROUND
This wonderfully sweet wine was first released back in 2004 and marked the first winemaking collaboration between father/daughter winemaking team, Mike and Natalie. This was also Latah Creek’s first venture into the world of red dessert wines. During a trip to Italy the year before, Ellena and Mike discovered the marvelous Recioto wines of Northern Italy and it was decided right then that a similar wine was needed at Latah Creek. So upon their return, Natalie and Mike made plans for producing the “Porto-styled” wine, without the added alcohol, from the upcoming 2003 harvest. After fermentation they took 6 barrels of their 2003 Cabernet Sauvignon and blended it with unfermented Cabernet juice held back. It was exactly what they were looking for. Because of this wine’s limited production and reserve quality, it is now part of the Reserve Reds line-up.

WINEMAKING
Thefruity and bold nature of the Syrah grape makes it a great varietal to use for this sweet red wine, and one of Mike and Natalie's favorites. The base wine spent 16 months in French and American Oak. This is a small-lot wine, with less than 4 barrels produced.

100% Syrah

TASTING NOTES
The aroma in the glass brings the sensation of pepper while bright berries and plums linger in your mouth long after the wine has been swallowed.

FOOD PAIRING
Serve this wine by itself, along side dark chocolate, or with a strong cheese and fruit platter. The sweet and bold characters of this wine also make it a great addition to many recipes
