Drops of Jupiter California 2012

Winemaker's Notes:

Together with winemaker James Foster, the band Train has created a fruit-forward petite sirah-based red. The minute you uncork the bottle, the boysenberry fruit leaps for your glass. With soft and supple tannins, this wine is great with or without food. Pair with Lava Chocolate Cake with Berries of Eggplant Lasagna.

Save me, San Francisco Wine Co. proudly donates processed from its sales to support Family House, a non-profit organization providing temporary housing to families of seriously ill children receiving treatment at the University of California San Francisco Benioff Children's Hospital. The project was launched by the band Train: "We were kids ourselves when we started Train, and played in coffee shops in and around San Francisco - and now we all have children of our own. Because of that, the fact that some of us have experienced our children being in hospital NICIUs, and our San Francisco roots, we feel like the best way for us to give back in with the Family House organizaton. Being a local cause and helping kids and their families when they need it most is something we profoundly admire and there's not a more caring staff from the top down. Visit Family House and you'll leave feeling the same way. We are so proud to be associated with the Bay Area Family House." Read less

Tea and earth aromas dominate the nose along with some subtle plummy fruit and hints of cola. Big and broad in the mouth and texturally showing very well with excellent integration and richness. The flavors remain fairly fresh, if perhaps fading with a nice core of black cherry fruit supported by a hint of sweetness, though there’s enough acidity here to keep this lively in the mouth. The tannins are soft and chewy, and the fruit remains admirably rich in a plummy candied blackberry way right through the rather long finish. This is simple to be sure, and the sweetness becomes more apparent, but it’s rich and voluptuous and would go great with a burger. 84pts

One of my favorites! Very rich and a perfect combination of tangy and sweet.

Fruit forward with little acidity or tannins. Finish is short and a bit sweet. On the positive side it would work well as a group cookout wine.

Fruit-forward, insanely loveable Petite Sirah-based Red Wine. The minute you uncork the bottle, the boysenberry fruit leaps from your glass. With soft, supple tannins, this wine is great with food or without. Serve it at cellar temperature to allow the flavors to evolve in the glass. - Winery Acid: 0.63 g/100ml PH: 3.71 Residual Sugar: 8.1 g/L Alcohol %: 13.5%

Created by the rock band Train, Save Me San Francisco Wine Company donates proceeds from the sale of their wines to Family House, which provides housing for families whose children are undergoing treatment at the UCSF Children's Hospital. This Petite Sirah is a bold, rich red that matches up beautifully to the spicy and exotic foods that band enjoys when they're traveling.
