    Winemaker Notes

    This is the elegant, debonair wine of the group despite being made in a more opulent style that predicts the very rich nature of all of the Consilience reds. That velvety texture and finesse typical of Pinot Noir is enriched by dense, sweet, chocolaty dark cherry flavors with earthy overtones. Matured for 12 months in 100% French oak barrels, the fruit for this wine comes in part from the White Hills vineyard and from Ashley's vineyard in the now-becoming-famous Santa Rita Hills region.

    Consilience, , California
    Consilience
    Consilience was founded in 1999 when after years of planning the aspirations of two couples became a small reality. There of course is a long story, but the short of it began when winemaker Brett Escalera, his wife Monica, and the two of us, Tom and Jodie Daughters all met back in 1990 with many common values and interests.

    Opulent and fruit-driven with robust tannins, Nero d’Avola is Sicily’s most widely planted red grape variety. Popular throughout Sicily both on its own and in blends, it features alongside Nerello Mascalese, Nerello Cappuccio, and Nocera in full-bodied Faro, and with Frappato in Cerasuolo di Vittoria to produce a light, lively wine.

    In the Glass

    Nero d’Avola is a bold, powerful wine with relatively high alcohol, moderate acidity, and an affinity for oak. Its flavors and aromas are of dark fruit (like plum, blackberry, and black cherry), peppery spice and sweet cocoa, occasionally accompanied by an earthy or herbal character. Dried fruit flavors are also common due to the hot weather this variety requires to thrive.

    Perfect Pairings

    Nero d’Avola’s dark, spicy flavors lend it well to richly flavored grilled meat dishes, but can also be a great compliment to simple pizza or pasta.

    Sommelier Secret

    If you love big, bold wines like Napa Cabernet and Châteauneuf-du-Pape but want to stick to a budget, look no further than Nero d’Avola for a worthy substitute. Even the best examples are often under $20.
