Mixed Breed supports Placer SPCA
Mount Aukum, Calif. – Mixed Breed – The C.G. Di Arie Winery recently released Mixed Breed, a red wine created by the C.G. Di Arie Winery to help support the Placer SPCA and homeless animals waiting to find a loving home and family.
We had the opportunity to taste this rich tasting and full bodied red blend which consists of 45% Zinfandel, 31.5% Syrah, 13.5% Petite Sirah, and 10% Cabernet Franc grapes. Aged for two years in French Oak, with strong blackberry aroma, the wine displays a long finish with firm tannins. We allowed the bottle to breath for about an hour after opening which provided a gentler finish. It paired very well with Lucilles Smokehouse tri-tip. Suggested food pairings include Polenta with Portobello mushrooms and Fontina, Beef, Osso bucco (lamb), grilled pork loin (brined) with a flavorful (yet mellow) rub or perhaps grilled lamb burgers. Try it with Asiago, Sonoma Jack Gouda, or Gruyere.
Each bottle of Mixed Breed that is sold represents a donation by the C.G. Di Arie Winery to help care for these animals in need. With every sip of this hand-crafted Sierra Foothills red wine (a blend of 5 red grape varieties), animal lovers can take pride knowing a portion of the Mixed Breed purchase price will be donated to help fund shelters for homeless, lost or abused pets, low-cost spay/neuter services, humane investigations and increased public awareness.
“Enjoying a world class wine while helping animals in need,” said Winemaker Chaim Gur-Arieh “is a win-win!”
MIXED BREED is available at Total Wine and More, on line at the winery web-site and at the C.G. Di Arie tasting room in Plymouth, California. Please visit the winery web site www.cgdiarie.com for additional information.
