Sutter Home Red Blend 1.5 L
Sutter Home Red Blend is a deep, dark red color, offering enticing aromas of fresh cherries and berries with delicious hints of sweet vanilla. Luxurious and sophisticated, this wine is wonderfully approachable and food-friendly, bursting with juicy red fruit flavors complemented by accents of toasty oak and spice, and an exceptionally smooth, graceful texture. It’s delicious on its own, but is at its best when paired with herb-roasted chicken, mushroom risotto, grilled pork burgers or your favorite family recipes.
To create a wine with balanced, juicy fruit flavors and soft tannins, our Red Blend is crafted with grapes harvested from premium vineyards throughout California’s best wine growing regions. Our Zinfandel comes from the Sierra Foothills and Lodi, known for producing grapes with intense flavors. The Merlot is sourced from cool coastal vineyards where the grapes ripen slowly, resulting in soft, juicy flavors. To round out the blend, our Cabernet Sauvignon comes from Lodi, where warm days and cool nights promote classic flavors and structure.
This wine is a beautifully balanced blend of Zinfandel, Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon. To the blend, Zinfandel lends its deep, bold berry flavors; Merlot contributes fresh, juicy fruit flavors and aromas; and the Cabernet adds elegant structure. One of the signatures of this blend is its smooth, luxurious mouthfeel. To enhance the wine’s texture and extract softer tannins, winemakers employ an aggressive early pumpover regimen. Afterwards, the wine is aged in a combination of French and American oak to add additional body and character.
