Tasting Notes

Jardesca is a new project from former San Francisco bartender Duggan McDonnell: a wine-based aperitif made from California grapes and locally-grown herbs. We love what white wine aperitifs can do in a cocktail and Duggan is a wizard with his mixing. He brought his bag of tricks to our tasting bar recently, beginning with fresh basil and lime. He muddled those two ingredients with some simple syrup, added some ice cubes, poured in about three ounces of Jardesca, and topped it off with some soda water. Poof! Cocktail heaven. On its own, the Jardesca is fresh and floral with plenty of snappy acidity. It can function in place of a normal dry vermouth as well, but I love it over ice with a twist.

    Looking for your summer aperitif wine that's local, light, aromatic, complex, and wont give you a hangover?! This small production aperitif is made in Northern California's Sonoma County and is loaded with natural aromatic botanicals like basil, Kaffir lime, fresh herbs, mint, flowers, and citrus. This is a drier style aperitif wine whose cocktail combinations are endless! Splash of soda, lime, fruit, or lavender, and you've got yourself one complex concoction! I've been enjoying it on my deck during sunset for an immediate summer refreshment! You must try! You will be hooked.
