We have a new arrival from one of our favorite domestic producers Matthiasson, the wine goes by the name Tendu Red and it’s a liter bottle!
This is a superb field blend, masterfully crafted by Steve Matthiasson, that supplies a serious QPR. We got a lot of joy out of drinking this and we are sure you will as well.
Eric Asimov of The New York Times recently wrote an article: 20 Reds Under $20: Where the Values Live, for Now. The article listed a diverse selection of wines, from around the world, that stood out to him as exceptional values. Well, once again we loved his choices, and Tendu Red happened to be one of them!

“Matthiasson is one of the most interesting California producers. Steve and Jill Klein Matthiasson understand the value of offering great, moderately priced bottles that are not simply cheap imitations. Tendu is Matthiasson’s value wine. It’s bright and lively, with balancing acidity and a little tannic grip, and it’s made without added sulfur dioxide, a stabilizer that is almost universally used throughout the wine world. The grapes — 47 percent aglianico, 42 percent montepulciano and 11 percent barbera — come from Dunnigan Hills in the northwest portion of the Central Valley.” - Eric Asimov of The New York Times
