Three new bottles were introduced to the SCU Mission Wine Collection in fall 2016. Each wine hails from a different regional winery, each run by a different SCU graduate. First, the Mission Reserve: GiaDomella Wines’ 2008 Cabernet Sauvignon, a full-bodied red known for great tannic structure. Next, the Perrucci Family Vineyard’s 2013 Red Blend featuring pronounced flavors of ripe plum and black cherry. The final entry was originally the Testarossa 2014 Chardonnay, but when it sold out, Guglielmo Winery’s 2012 Cabarnet Sauvignon was added to the mix. (How many schools have that kind of winery depth?) This cab has dark fruit notes and baking spices, making it the perfect addition to the 2016 offerings.
