Rocca Red Wine & Book Pairing

Books and wine can be just as satisfying as music and wine.

This Vespera red blend from Rocca Winery is the perfect pairing for my genre of choice – thriller/mystery.

If you visit Rocca Winery in Napa – mention this post for a BOGO tasting (a $35 value), by appointment. Their signature seated tasting takes you through a flight of four current releases in their historic parlor. Your host will guide you through the wines and educate you on their history & winemaking practices.

Their 2014 Vespera blend is 50% Cabernet Sauvignon, 27% Syrah, 23% Merlot, and is as intense as the books I read – yet just as drinkable as the books are readable.

This blend has blackberry and black tea notes, with a little bit of oak and a lot of tannins.

Pairs best with books like – The Last Time I Lied, Into the Water, and An Anonymous Girl. The first and last book are a January and February read from my SF wine and book club!

Note: this wine was received complimentary from Rocca Winery.
