Lemon Wine Chili

Lemon in Chili? YES! The fresh lemon and lemon pepper seasoning gives this chili recipe a little kick that pairs perfectly with our new 2019 Cabernet Sauvignon OR our 2021 Unleashed Sparkling Rose!

2019 Cabernet Sauvignon, Olsen Vineyard

A refined expression of Yakima Valley Cabernet Sauvignon. The nose is full and complex with layers of cherry, currants and black tea. The palate is supple and silky, with cola, dried herbal notes, and round yet present tannins. You will be treated with a long lingering finish that leaves you wanting another sip.
