2017 Samuele's Quarry Red Blend
2021 Sunset Magazine Gold Medal Winner!
The 2017 vintage of Samuele's Quarry Red Blend is 59% Zinfandel, 40% Barbera, and 1% Petite Sirah. Almost 17 months of barrel aging have added complexity to this vintage.
I am highly pleased to see how well this wine has matured in the bottle. Against a background of velvety Zinfandel fruit, it can stand up to the tangiest foods, still presenting you with high notes of spicy Barbera, hints of black pepper, and deep cherry tones from the Petite Sirah.
This wine is wonderful for enjoying casual summer evenings with your friends and family. I invite you to savor a wine ideal for barbeques and outdoors.

“Micro” Winery - “Macro” Taste……………. This 2017 Samuele’s Quarry Red Blend does not disappoint. It’s my “go to” for any occasion and with any food. Poured it at my daughter’s wedding – BAM! Huge hit with all guests. Appears my hidden VALUE gem has been found though. Just saw this wine got slapped with a 92 rating/gold metal award. Great for La Chertosa – congrats! Bottom line- better get it fast – this 2017 blended beauty won’t last.

Incredible value for a red blend that drinks more like a Bordeaux than a Zinfandel. Wonderful to pair with pasta. A well balanced not overly fruity or tannic wine, softened by the barrel aging. Definitely cannot go wrong with this purchase.

soaring high QPR! This blend was the slam dunk choice for my son's wedding last June and paired perfectly with a savory Tri-Tip...month's later they still mention it. My advice is buy more than you originally thought...you'll be glad you did. Thank you La Chertosa...this bottle is special.

This is my favorite new wine. It goes with everything! It’s easier to drink than a Zinfandel but has the same exciting burst of flavor that I love. We bought two cases!
