    We think you should grill a beef tenderloin and serve it with a red wine-blackberry sauce and some baby spring vegetables. Lamb chops with a fried herb salsa are another fine choice. Or a classic coq au vin with prunes. Once you've fully enjoyed the savory part of the meal, we say open another bottle, and fill your glasses to go with some rich chocolate truffles, the likes of which are sold at Vosges Chocolates. That's really all you need to know.

    Winery: "The 2015 Mad Hatter is an aromatic blend of plum, wild raspberry, fig, Maraschino cherry, and cocoa powder and a hint of baking spice. On the palate, it has bold and lively flavors with a rich mouthfeel and a long, smooth finish.

    The first vintage of Mad Hatter was made from the 2003 harvest, with the commitment of making an elegant and well-balanced Bordeaux blend from vineyards throughout Napa Valley. The 2015 vintage aptly continues that commitment. Under the winemaking direction of Tuck Beckstoffer and Shawn Johnson, we have selected vineyards on Pritchard Hill, St. Helena and Pope Valley along with a small amount of Mendocino fruit. By blending Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Petite Verdot and Cabernet Franc, we have created a wine with complex aromas, great balance and a long smooth finish."

    Trade Notes: "It’s up-front, full of ripe plum, cherry, and blackcurrant aromas, with cocoa and chocolate, making way to a long spicy finish. Drink now to enjoy the rich fruits or hold a few years."
