Winemaker Notes
This red blend includes a number of varietals, each adding different components to the wine. Merlot and Cabernet Franc provided lots of dark fruit and tannin, while the Pinot Noir provided lovely floral notes. Malolactic fermentation took place in tank with purposefully selected French oak blocks which led to notes of chocolate and mocha. A further maturation of the blend took place in neutral French oak barrels for an additional 4 months to allow the blend to integrate before bottling.
Food Pairing Notes
Enjoy this delightful red blend with friends around the campfire, or pair it with BBQ beef burgers or housemade pizza.
