Winemaker's Notes:

This complex and structured wine is a blend of four classic Bordeaux varietals. The intense edge of Cabernet Sauvignon combines with Malbec's blackberry flavors, Merlot's roundness and finesse, and Petit Verdot's firm structure for a wine with layer upon layer of nuanced flavors and depth. Aromas of toasted nutmeg and cocoa powder accent the dark fruit flavors of black cherry, ripe raspberry and currant. Well-structured tannins round out this vintage with a smooth, rich finish.

Blend: 70% Cabernet Sauvignon, 15% Malbec, 10% Merlot, 5% Petit Verdot

About The Calling:

It was serendipity that brought Emmy Award winning sports commentator Jim Nantz and wine industry entrepreneur Peter Deutsch together at a restaurant in Greenwich, Connecticut where they were each having dinner with friends. Peter had recently read Jim’s book about his father, Always By My Side, and it resonated with him, reminding him of his own relationship with his father. Peter introduced himself that evening.

Jim was at the restaurant having dinner with a friend who had contacts in the wine industry and was working on an idea that had been in development for years. Jim had long held a passion for wine and was exploring how to take the next step in becoming involved in the wine business when Peter stopped by the table. As fate would have it, that chance meeting would spawn a friendship and partnership.

Theirs has been a hands-on collaboration. Jim and Peter traveled together to California and worked closely with renowned winemaker Marco DiGiulio on every step of the winemaking process, from vineyard to bottle. They also poured themselves into the packaging process, working to capture the essence of the brand in the label design. For Jim and Peter, The Calling is about pursuing a passion, inspiring others, and making a great wine.
