Wine Recommendation

Seka Hills

2010 Tuluk'a, Estate
(Capay Valley)

Tuluk'a is the signature proprietary red blend for Seka Hills. It is Patwin dialect which comes from winery owners Yocha DeHe Wintun Nation in Capay Valley. As the start of a dedicated wine making effort, winemaker Blake Kuhn has created an impressive opener.

Blended primarily of estate grown Syrah and Cabernet Sauvignon color is rich and deep. The nose greets with subtle impacts of meatiness that Syrah is well known for along with pleasant but subtle hints of oak and dust.

On first taste bright acidity with nuances of cherry are well balanced against lush supple tannins. Pepper spice lingers on the finish with a zest and finesse. This is a food wine beyond doubt and will pair well with steak, prime rib, pork ribs or whatever might be on the grill for a home BBQ.
