Red wine in a can? It seemed like a crazy idea, but we love a challenge, so we set out to make a featherlight red that is refreshing and perfect to drink ice cold. The 2020 Waves Red Wine has aromas of black plum, earth, dark cherry and violets. The palate has a rich middle full of black plum, cherry, and cocoa powder. There is only the slightest hint of mouth-coating tannin, followed by a long, dry finish. A bit of sparkle makes this wine super lively on the palate, perfect for sipping out of the can or from a glass.
Gary Venturi Vineyard: zinfandel, petite sirah, dry farmed, organic
Gary Venturi Vineyard is in Calpella, just north of Ukiah on the west end of the valley. The vineyard is primarily old vines, but we used the young vines for this springy red.
At Las Jaras, our goal is to make delicious wine that has tons of energy and balance. We want them to be vibrant, delicate, and supple all at the same time while also being food friendly and easy for anyone to enjoy. Our wines are intended to reflect the unique terroir of the vineyards using minimal intervention so you can taste their natural, rhythmic expression. If you are not used to drinking wines made this way, the experience can be a revelation.
Our lighter wines can elevate your daily experiences. Bring the elegant bubbles of our Sparkling Wine to your best friends engagement party. Nestle the Rosé into your backpack for a trip to the park to watch an epic sunset. Pair the chilled Glou Glou with a margherita pizza to make takeout tastier.
Our medium bodied reds pair with deep savory meals and create thought provoking moments. A holiday dinner includes a conversation about Carignan. The Cabernet Sauvignon is brought to your favorite restaurant to share a taste with your server. “Does this remind you of 70’s Napa?” And our Sweet Berry Wine demands explanation, inspires stories, and creates joy. For your Wine!
We are very excited to share our wines with you—there are more to come!
Cheers, Joel & Eric
