Congress created the National Fallen Firefighters Foundation to lead a nationwide effort to honor America's fallen firefighters. Since 1992, the non-profit foundation has developed and expanded programs and resources that assist their survivors in rebuilding their lives.
In support of the foundation's mission, we blended Zinfandel, Alicante Bouschet, Petite Sirah and Syrah for our fifth release of Tribute Red Blend.

Thirty percent (30%) of all sales of this wine will be donated to support the NFFF's mission.
The 2014 vintage is a blend of Zinfandel, Alicante Bouschet, Petite Sirah, and Syrah in that order. Dark ruby in appearance the nose showcases a clash of black raspberries and currants with supporting roles of white pepper and cigar box. The palate kicks off with dark fruit jams, vanilla and cassis while the composed acidity and firm tannins bring you to a subtle but lasting finish.
