Winemaker Eric Miller makes great wines at his Kokomo winery in Sonoma. Breaking Bread is his side hustle/passion project, where he gets a little more experimental.
His skills shine through on this more fun side of winemaking that he clearly takes as seriously as Kokomo. This is a whole cluster fermentation red, aged in neutral (used) barrels. And man is it balanced and refreshing.
The nose hits with absolute rhubarb followed by a punchy berry fruit note (like all the berries), and a small heady dose of herbs. The palate is fat and juicy with tight fruit and some of that herbiness in the background. It's a very balanced wine and great for casual nights.
Zinfandel, Carignan, Petite Sirah.
