'2901' Red

Red Blend

2015

Our 2015 blend consists of 30% Merlot, 30% Cab Franc, 20% Cab Sauv, and 20% Malbec. Let's be honest, you need a red wine to drink everyday. However, you don't want to open your best stuff all the time. We get it. Keeping that in mind, we have crafted this blend specifically for this purpose. This blend has a smooth approach, which means easy drinking for you. Light acid and medium tannins make this blend great for anyone to appreciate. This wine finishes softly, thanks to our oak program as well as our winemaker.

Anytime that you see Cab Franc as a leading component in a blend, you can expect delicious fruit flavors. Especially since the fruit is coming from our vineyards. We let our Cab Franc hang on the vine longer than most vineyards, allowing for the fruit flavors to further develop and simultaneously add structure. The Merlot and Cab add structure while not taking anything away from the smooth and silky qualities that our French Oak barrels have provided.  Last but certainly not least, the Malbec. Malbec does wonders to a blend. Most notably, it enhances fruit qualities and bolsters the mouth feel.  By the time you finish reading this, you are going to need more wine. This wine can be enjoyed on its' own but certainly pairs well with roast beef tenderloin or lamb burgers.
