2017 Forlorn Hope, Queen of the Sierra Red, Sierra Foothills California
A forlorn hope - is a band of soldiers or other combatants chosen to take the vanguard in a military operation, such as a suicidal assault through the kill zone of a defended position, where the risk of casualties is high. That should tell you everything about the dope team at Forlorn Hope and their love for the little guy , tenacity and they "relish on a challenge and a good tussle." The rockstart Matthew Rorick has been the magic behind FH since 2005. Check him out!
The Forlorn Hope "Queen of the Sierra" Red brings you Notes of strawberry, raspberry, blackberry with a ineral, earthy finish. Dry and full body. It has dynamic tension between bright and forward fruit and the supple tannins and lively acidity.

Each variety was fermented separately due to differing pick dates: the Trousseau and Mondeuse were each fermented in open top fermentors with 100% stem inclusion; the Zinfandel was destemmed and fermented in a closed-top tank. As with all Forlorn Hope wines, no new oak is utilized, and nothing was added to the must or wine. Day session? Have this chilled and meet your guests at the door with this Queen!
