Mike Dunne’s Tasting Notes from the competition:

January 14, 2022

San Francisco International Wine Competition Best of Class award
2019 Petit Verdot

“Bishops Hill 2019 Dunnigan Hills Petit Verdot: Whether as grape or juice, Petit Verdot has the bold fruit and sturdy tannins to travel far and well. Proof is right here. Bishops Hill is in Joliet, Illinois. Dunnigan Hills is in Northern California’s Yolo County, just northwest of Sacramento. The result of this long-distance collaboration is a Petit Verdot that resonates with beautifully juicy dark-fruit flavor and bristling tannins that will benefit from a few years of holding the wine in the cellar.”

Other winners:

San Francisco International Wine Competition Double Gold award
2019 Red Wine Blend
San Francisco International Wine Competition Gold award
2019 Petite Syrah
