Alebrije: a brightly colored Mexican sculpture of a mythical animal. The idea for Alebrije was born following a spiritual encounter with a hawk while visiting Hassayampa Vineyards to plan the harvest of the Tannat grapes used in this wine. The vineyard owner’s son had passed away unexpectedly not long before, and that chance meeting with what I felt was his spirit animal inspired me to create this wine for him. As vibrant and spirited as the man himself, this old world style red bled of Sangiovese, Cabernet Sauvignon and Tannat also pays homage to my wife’s love of all things Tuscan.
