Why We're Drinking It:

Our 2013 Growers Reserve Red Blend glistens in the glass with deep, ruby hues. The aroma is inviting with layers of ripe, red cherries accented with hints of fruit leather, spicy cinnamon and vanilla. The soft entry is velvety sweet, rich with ripe red plums and black cherries. The wine lasts long on the palate and is carried with gentle tannins and a nicely-balanced note of toasted oak.

FROM THE FIELD:

The unique and sustainably-farmed sites sit in the heart of Sonoma Valley. The healthy vines spread their roots in rich, permeable soils. The loamy earth absorbs the summer heat, creating a great ripening environment. The 2013 vintage was as close to perfect as grape growers could ask for, starting with the cold winter, when the vines shut down for their annual dormacy. After being abruptly awoken by the warm spring, the vines quickly started to show strong signs of bloom and fruit set. The moderate summer led to a long growing season, giving the fruit plenty of set. The moderate summer led to a long growing season, giving the fruit plenty of time to reach the optimum ripening.

Tasting Notes:

Our Sonoma Valley Red Wine is a proprietary red blend that includes a generous amount of Merlot for its richness, dark fruit and structure. Malbec was used in the blend to temper the wine by adding lively red fruit notes,lovely aroma and gentle acidity. The grapes were picked at the peak of ripeness. The wine was aged in French oak to add notes of vanilla and toast to the aroma. American oak was also used to add sweetness and spice on the palate. The wine was aged for 11 months to preserve the fresh character and expression of the wine
