The Tax and Tally is a desert wine made from grapes from the good folks at Rhumbline Vineyard. Aged for 3 years in 25% new oak, 75% neutral, and is named after my mother in law, Marilyn. Marilyn worked in accounting most of her life and to this day won't turn in her taxes until her check book is balanced down to the penny. Born in Saint Louis, she is a 1st generation Croatian and doesn't take shit from anybody - and she'll tell you that. Christmases, birthdays and pretty much every holiday she goes all out with the best gifts. In the kitchen she nourishes her family with midwestern staples sometimes with a Croatian twist. The Tax and Tally is a rich, velvety, sweet wine and is great after dinner, paired with a cigar, dark chocolate or just on its own to satisfy the sweet tooth.
