Working in some of the best vineyards in the Napa Valley, Peter Franus believes in a minimalist approach. He will use his judgement rather than science and let the 'vineyards do the talking' as he continues to make wines of great character and structure.
Superb example of Californian Zinfandel. One opened you will find an array of flavours vying for your attention from white pepper to anise to strawberry and perhaps a touch of sweet oak. Despite all of this this is as elegant a wine as you will find from the Napa Valley.
1870 Sour Cocktail Recipe
The Sour Cocktail is versatile – whether you decide to switch up the Whisky, sour or sweet element, the end result will almost always be delicious – just remember to stick to that golden ratio of 2 parts Whisky, 1 part sour and 1 part sweet (but hey, if your personal preference is different, you do you!). The 1870 Sour, also known as the New York Sour ,updates the Whiskey Sour recipe (whiskey, lemon, sugar, egg white) with a float of dry red wine. (Psst, a float is when you suspend the final ingredient on top of the drink!). Everyone loves a good layered cocktail. They are fun to make and look amazing in photos - perfect for Instagram. The New York sour has been around longer than any living human. It’s thought that this cocktail was created around the 1870s/1890's - certainly a modern classic! If you’re after something sweeter, bourbon or brandy are both great options. Prefer a smokier sour? A scotch will be your go-to. When it comes to the sour substitution, lime is a more subtle option if you find lemon too overpowering, alternatively you can opt for a sweeter pick like orange or a more savoury choice like grapefruit. And when it comes to the egg white and no egg white debate, well, it’s completely up to you!
