The 2004 Quadriga, Hopland Ranches, Mendocino Estate red blend is a portrait of aromas and flavors that have resonated throughout the Mediterranean for centuries. This delicious wine is a deep red color with a beautiful violet hue on the rim. A stately wine, in which the fruit forward aromas of plum are met with intense flavors of dark cherry, earth and spice. The first release was bottled solely for the Brutocao family and a few friends, and now, this second vintage is a Gold Medal Wine Club Exclusive. With the exception of just a few cases being held back at the winery for the family, the 2004 Quadriga is being distributed to Gold Wine Club members only. Pair this with almost any Italian dish, we recommend the Chicken Cacciatore served over penne pasta.

*Since Gold Medal Wine Club purchased essentially the entire production of this wine, it is not scheduled to be entered into the national wine competitions.
