About the Charity:

Over the last several years, The Periwinkle Foundation has hosted multiple successful Iron Sommelier competitions, uncovering an enthusiastic passion for wine among its supporters. Building on this success, Periwinkle teamed up with Houston-based The Nice Winery to create a wine that would honor the mission of Periwinkle and impress the sophisticated pallets of Periwinkle’s most ardent supporters.

A full 30% of the proceeds from every bottle of this wine will fund The Periwinkle Foundation’s Camps, Arts and Survivor Programs for children, teens and young adults who are challenged by cancer and other life threatening illnesses and cared for at Texas Children’s Hospital.

Since The Periwinkle Foundation’s inception in 1983, pediatric oncologists have made great strides in improving the overall cure rate of children with cancer. Nearly 80% of children diagnosed with cancer now survive. While more children are surviving, successful treatment may leave them with mental or physical complications that can impact them for the rest of their lives. Periwinkle Programs play a vital role in the overall healing process of these special children, teens and families.

The Periwinkle Foundation develops and provides programs that positively change the lives of children, young adults and families who are challenged by cancer and other life threatening illnesses. As the survival rate grows, so does the need for long-term support and programs. What started as a simple camp for children with cancer uncovered a need for camps for teenagers, families, and long-term survivors, as well as a robust Arts In Medicine Program.

Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
Rich aromas and flavors of toasty vanilla are well balanced with plum, boysenberry, and hints of roasted game. This wine is rich and concentrated. The structure and weight are big, but the finish is smooth as silk.
Awards
Silver Medal in the 2016 Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo International Wine Competition
Vineyard Notes
This luscious, full-bodied Petite Sirah is from a single vineyard at the base of Spring Mountain in the St. Helena appellation of Napa Valley. The vineyard is on the west side of the Valley floor and benefits from copious direct sunlight during the growing season as well as cool breezes in the afternoon – a perfect situation for Petite Sirah.
Food Pairing Notes
Enjoy with ripe cheeses or a well-marbled steak.

I enjoyed this wine very much last night with a fine Rib Eye steak grilled by me to perfection!
