The signature of Lion Tamer is a generous palate of black raspberry and surprisingly lush tannins.
The Lion Tamer White Blend highlights the unique white varieties we grow in our estate vineyards on Mount Veeder.

“This wine pairs well with poached or grilled seafood, shrimp or crab with spicy aioli, baby greens tossed in citrus honey vinaigrette, avocados, fruit salsa, shaved fennel, tangerines and triple crème cheeses.” ~ Chad Hendrickson, Executive Chef
