Tallulah proprietor/winemaker Mike Drash was driven to Northern California from the American South by a love of wine and food. He entered the wine business as a cellar hand at DeLoach, moved on to J (both in the Russian River Valley), then Far Niente and Luna Vineyards of Napa Valley. In 2009, he discovered that the Tallulah wine brand was available for purchase. With a daughter named Tallulah and family ties to actress Tallulah Bankhead, he saw the opportunity as a sign and made the label his.
Opaque and ruby-black with aromas of dusty black fruit, mocha, game and dark spice. The palate is full-bodied with moderate fine, powdery tannins. Very attractive flavors of mocha, black fruit, game, toasted wood and dark spice. 91+ points
