The alchemy and artistry of blending is something that challenges and motivates us as winemakers. Taking the individual varietal components and then blending them into a seamless whole while ensuring that their characteristics are well represented. As a red blend, we are not tied to a pre-determined percentage of any one varietal, giving us the freedom to create a unique blend that is delicious right out of the gate. We selected several blocks from our estate’s Alexander Valley side to create this final blend. This Merlot-based blend shows lovely, high-toned red fruit in the 2015 vintage with hints of mocha, vanilla, and oak. On the palate, the wine is round, rich, and ripe, with solid structure and balanced acid. Christmas spice notes surround a core of berries. Nicely developed tannins allow a long, smooth finish. The wine is mellow, approachable, and very food-friendly.
