Why are some people skeptical to try wines from the Sierra Foothills? The answer is in the history of what the region used to be. The Andis team realized they were 'Cursed by the Knowledge' that people had about their region, and they knew the only way to break that spell was to make extraordinary wines. The Painted Fields 2020 'Curse of Knowledge' Red Blend is the result of the Andis team's dedication and vineyard research to thwart the curse and equip people with new knowledge of the beautifully balanced, high quality wines emerging from the Sierra Foothills. Intense ruby in color, this Bordeaux-style blend offers a sensational bouquet of dried violet, black cherry, fresh herbs, and cocoa powder. The palate is generous and round with velvety tannins and a lingering finish of dark berries and black licorice. Enjoy!
