2014 Banshee "Mordecai" Red Blend

SKU #1245891

What happens when a winery is able to secure small lots of fruit from some of the best vineyards in California, but not in large enough quanties to make affordable wine? Banshee's Mordecai is one winery's delicious solution. About the producer: "Banshee Wines was founded by three friends from the Midwest and East Coast who shared a passion for wine and a lifelong dream of owning their own winery. Their fascination with wine started early in life. While their peers were drinking Milwaukee's Best, they had an affinity towards collecting European wines and hosting dorm room wine tastings. Post-college, each pursued a career in the wine industry, ranging from importing wines, to winemaking, to distribution and sales. When their paths ultimately converged in San Francisco, they shared many meals, bottles of wine, concerts, and laughs with one another. In 2009 they pooled their money together to make the first vintage of Banshee Wines Pinot Noir, which sold out in three short months. By the end of the year, Banshee Wines was their full-time pursuit."

You don't grow up in a East Coast Jewish family without becoming quite familiar with the writing of Mordecai Richler. Author of such works as "Barney's Version" and "The Apprenticeship of Duddy Kravitz," his work evoked a sense of feeling out of place, and the things people do to conquer such anxiety. My solution? Simply open a bottle of the aptly named blend from the boys of Banshee, three friends from the Midwest who fought to fully immerse themselves in the insular world of Sonoma winemaking. A full-bodied and rich wine that is interlaced with hints of black fruit, baking spice, and tomato leaf. And so, the next time Mom calls and asks "Are you married yet?" Simply breath, pull the cork, and let Mordecai calm you down.

- When people consider domestic wine, they normally think about the state of California. The fine viticultural Region within California, including the Napa Valley, Sonoma, Santa Cruz Mountains, Mendocino and Santa Barbara, are capable of growing grapes of world-class quality. But there's plenty of fabulous wine coming from other states, too. Oregon, Washington and New York are also causing eyebrows (and glassware) to be raised around the world.

- With the explosive growth that California's wine industry has seen the past several years, it's easy to view winemaking and grape growing in the Golden State as a recent phenomenon. And while it's true that California's viticultural history is brief compared to several European countries, this state's roots date back well over 200 years. Due to the enormous response to California wine within the United States and worldwide, there are thousands of excellent and diverse wines being produced within the state each year.
