Winemaker's Notes:

At Tamás Estates we've made it our passion to fashion California wines in a style honoring their varietal heritage. With Double Decker Red we've taken it a step further by crafting an exciting blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Petite Sirah and Barbera to create an adventurously robust yet smooth red wine with mouth-filling flavors of blackberry, black cherry and plum, and a smooth, spicy finish. Hop on the bus for a multinational wine tour experience and stamp your passport for world taste.

A proprietary blend of red wines including Cabernet Sauvignon, Petite Sirah, and Barbera.

About Ivan Tamas Wines:

In 1984, Iván Tamás Fuezy and Steve Mirassou left their respective companies to start Iván Tamás Winery. Having worked in the wine business for decades in a time when the industry was far more fraternal than it is now, Ivan and Steve's paths crossed often. In fact, Ivan worked with Steve at Mirassou Vineyards for a time. Thus, the partnership began with a high level of familiarity. After several years as negociants, the two partners found a home in the Livermore Valley. Today Iván Tamás is a bonded winery producing about 60,000 cases per year of eight varietals, including the "house" Chardonnay and Cabernet for the Ritz-Carlton Hotels around the world.
