2018 Red Wine, Estate Grown, Lodi
Making a truly wonderful wine begins with only the best estate grown fruit from the heart of the Lodi Appellation. We HAND PICK into small bins to keep the fruit intact for its trip to the winery.
The 2018 blend consists of 60% Cabernet Sauvignon, 30% Merlot and 10% Syrah. Once we have received the fruit at the winery, we keep each varietal separate through the entire fermentation and aging process. We then make several blends and sample each one until we have found one that is greater than its parts.
Swirl this magnificent beauty around the glass and right away you'll notice the mesmerizing maroon color. Aromas of red & black cherries, cranberries, blackberries, black olives and hint of cocoa lead to olfactory bliss. The palate explodes with a wave of big, juicy black cherries, blackberries, boysenberries and lots of ripe dark fruit, with firm tannins, leading to a long, totally seductive finish.
