Actor, poet, playwright, screenwriter, activist ... Ruby Dee was also one half of a decades-long creative and marital partnership with the equally accomplished Ossie Davis. Our liquid ode to this legendary power couple is a captivating and rare Souzao.

Like Dee & Davis, the Souzao grape variety might come from humble origins, but it’s capable of big and beautiful things. Originally from Portugal, Souzao has a richly pigmented skin (key to the wine’s trademark deep color) and naturally fresh acidity, which make it a great choice for adding oomph to blends and for use in Port. Here, however, Souzao has been allowed to shine on its own.

The grapes were sourced from Lodi, “one of the top wine regions in the country,” where winemakers “have quietly started producing some of the state’s best wines” ( Lodi’s warm, sunny climate allows the Souzao grapes plenty of time to develop those rich, concentrated flavors. And thanks to the excellent 2019 vintage, the winemaking team had their pick of quality fruit.

Full bodied and luscious, this exclusive red packs a punch of powerful, dark-fruit flavors, supported by intriguing licorice, thyme, and violet notes. It’ll be delicious on its own or when served alongside roasted meats, barbecue dishes, or hearty pastas.

If you’re a fan of BIG, fruit-rich reds, then you simply must try this exciting Souzao. Do The Right Thing and secure your share to enjoy with good friends and a classic film.

Classic Movie Pairing: Do The Right Thing (1989)
Dee and Davis were an iconic Hollywood couple, admired not only for their devotion to one another over a 57-year marriage, but also for their significant contributions to Hollywood, theater and social justice. In Spike Lee’s pivotal movie about race relations, they co-star as neighborhood personalities who dispense wisdom to the other characters. A thought-provoking and entertaining film, it inspired a generation of filmmakers and viewers alike.
