maryhill rosso granatoNew Zealand native Richard Batchelor, who works with 25 vineyards for the Leutholds, paired Petite Sirah (80%) and Zinfandel (20%) for this Proprietor’s Reserve blend. The Petite Sirah came from Art den Hoed Vineyard in the Yakima Valley and the Zinfandel from Gunkel Vineyard from the Columbia Valley. And as blended, they are Rosso Granato, with spice, cherry, blackberry and blueberry aromas and flavors that lead into grippy tannins and a long black fruit finish. This earned a gold medal at the 2016 Cascadia Wine Competition.
