Unplugged & Uncorked Rosso $13, Sierra Foothills, California

Sonata Rosso is a lush fusion of Syrah, Zinfandel & Cab Franc from the Sierra Foothills on the eastern side of California. A rich and well balanced red: Fruity, spicy, hints of clove, and vanilla with perfect tannins. This clean daily drinker pairs well with anything grilled to your favorite pizza. Especially perfect with my Grandma’s sauce.

Unplugged & Uncorked Bianco $13, Sierra Foothills, California

Sonata Bianco is a crisp, bright Sauvignon Blanc with a splash of Chardonnay. Fruity nose and hints of grass with clean flavors of pear and apricots fill your mouth and a citrus finish. Lovely with seafood and salads.

Unplugged & Uncorked Rosé $13, Sierra Foothills, California

Sonata Rosé is a cool blend of Petite Syrah and a rare Italian Grape Fiano from the Sierra Foothills on the eastern side of California. A dry and spicy Rosé, this can be drank by itself or pair it with Antipasti or anything grilled. “Not your grandmom’s Rosé!”
