Pam's friend David (and brother from a different mother) remains near and dear to our hearts. Since Pam started making Adrice Wines 10 years ago in the 2012 vintage, David has been by her side during harvest, fermentation, barreling...and eventually bottling...always offering a hand, his warm smile, and his unforgettable laugh. Thank you, Brother!
Us wine drinkers intuitively knew it…but now scientists have proven that high tannin wines are actually healthy for you! The Petite Sirah grape has been measured to have 2 to 3-times as many antioxidants than other grapes! So why not pour yourself a BIG glass of this beautiful stunner?
Mon Frère's opaque inky-purple color and floral/lavender nose greet you warmly and bring a smile to the face of BIG RED wine lovers. Inhale deeply, and you can pick up strong black tea, earth, and gobs of black fruit. In your mouth, Mon Frère gifts you with all the best qualities of a BIG RED – black fruits of plum and currant, bold tannins, strong black tea, a little licorice, and a beautiful, long finish on your palate (due to its lower acidity). Adrice Wines’ 2020 Mon Frère Petite Sirah is a gift from the Gods!
Pair this beauty with higher-fat, umami, or salty foods because of its aggressive tannins. Rich braised meats, casseroles, Wagyu burgers, Beef Stroganoff – heck, stream your favorite bestie movie and enjoy a big bowl of cheddar cheese popcorn with it! However you pair Mon Frère – wear your favorite pair in your lair…if you dare! (See what I did there?)
