67% Pinot Noir, 33% Zinfandel. A layered wine filled with soft notes of toasted clove, ripe figs and pomegrante. Smooth vanilla, raspberries and Bing cherries round out the finish.

“Great wine is a Necessity of Life” quotes Thomas Jefferson and we agree! Necessity Red is a unique Pinot Noir blend created at Cathedral Ridge inspired by the Thomas Jefferson quote. We share that view and celebrate it with a unique take on Pinot Noir. Necessity Red is essentially a Pinot Noir with some serious cojones. We achieve this delightful effect by blending with a judicious amount of our renowned Hillside Zinfandel – this creates some wonderful complexities and a sensuous mouth-feel – and the result is one of our best sellers.

The Pinot Noir from Dampier Vineyard’s distinctive acidity creates a wonderful balance with the Hillside Zinfandel. We have trademarked Necessity Red because we feel it’s truly unique and appeals to red wine lovers across the board. A lovely and nuance wine, the pH is 3.5 and a TA of 4.8, it is great for many styles of food including Cassie’s quick n’ dirty Grilled Honey Mustard Chicken Wings for which we provide a recipe card with every purchase. A limited run of 375 cases make this vintage of the blend rare.
