“Lou” Estate Zinfandel, Barbera, and Petite Sirah
Sip, savor swirl the dark berries & spicy fruit mid pallet. Delicate in color, cherry blossom bouquet, medium-bodied, undertones of cherry, and blackberry, with hints of pepper and clove. Complex, yet well-balanced, slight tannins with a long chewy finish. Paired nicely with friends on a warm summer day. Lou pairs well with grilled steak and America’s favorite pastime, Baseball!
Give Back: ALS CURE Project
The famous "Lou" Gehrig was a first baseman who played 17 seasons in the MLB with the New York Yankees. Because he was a powerful and durable hitter, people called him The Iron Horse. In his farewell speech after being diagnosed with ALS, he said he considered himself the "Luckiest Man on Earth."
Lou passed 2 years after his diagnosis.
Like Lou, baseball is life in the Piscotty family. Gretchen, along with her husband Mike were the "coaches of the family dug out" where the love of the game produced 3 incredibly athletic sons. In 2017, Gretchen was diagnosed with ALS. After a brave & valiant battle, she passed in 2018 at the tender age of 55 surrounded by those she loved the most. In her honor, the Piscotty Family started ALS CURE Project whose mission is finding a cure for this disease so that no one else has to suffer.
Cheers to you Gretchen, a true MVP and to the extraordinary life you lived with love, joy, dignity, and most of all Amazing Grace.
