2016 Easton Blue Release
Both Pippin Hill and Easton Events – an award winning event planning firm under the Easton Porter Group umbrella – served as inspiration for this wine. While Easton Events’ signature color, Easton Blue, inspired both the name of the wine and the hue of blue found in the label design, Pippin Hill’s beloved chickens inspired the artwork.
This signature red wine is rich up front with bay leaf, red currant and traces of cedar while the body remains grippy emphasizing the leathery notes with hints of lilac. The finesse of the finish highlights the acidity while lingering tobacco notes make this one of our best food wines. Pair this wine with Red Pump’s signature Tortellini. Pork, mushrooms, and red peppers are three flavors that complement the mild spiciness and medium body of Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot, the two primary grapes in Easton Blue – and our tortellini’s got all of the above!
