Cakebread's 2016 Rubaiyat, North Coast Shipping Special

2016 Rubaiyat, North Coast

This seasonal offering (it usually only lasts through the summer), which is named for a famous verse in a collection of poems by 12th century Persian philosopher Omar Khayyam, is a fun wine we created years ago to celebrate the coming of warmer weather, get-togethers in the backyard, and - of course - the time we spend around the barbecue.

A delicious blend of roughly 50% Pinot Noir and 50% Syrah, this is a bold, fruit-forward red wine that has the muscle to pair up with grilled meats, but also highlights an elegant, smooth finish that makes it a treat on its own.

This marks the first time in two years that we've been able to offer a shipping special on the Rubaiyat. Don't wait too long this offer of six bottles for $225 plus $10 for ground shipping is good for just a couple weeks, and with Memorial Day just around the corner, it's the perfect wine to stock up on for the summer.

Cheers!

Featured Recipe

Pappardelle With Duck Bolognese & Tuscan Kale

This month's recipe is our riff on a bolognese sauce, the classic meat sauce of northern Italy used to sauce fresh pasta and a great dish to make on cold winter's day. We've substituted duck legs for the meat in the recipe to complement our Two Creeks Pinot Noir. The long slow cooking process develops a nice depth of flavor and silkiness to the sauce that really matches well with the soft tannins and complexity of flavors found in the wine.

Happy Cooking,
