Barbed Wire Red Blend 2015
In the glass, our Barbed Wire Red Blend is a rich garnet c olor, bursting with inviting aromas of ripe berries and warm spices. Succulent black cherry, juicy plum and rich blackberry flavors mingle with hints of crushed herbs and vanilla. This approachable and versatile wine has a wonderfully smooth texture, balanced by bright, mouthwatering acidity. Barbed Wire Red Blend is delicious any time, but it rea lly shines next to barbecued chops, grilled salmon and pizza topped with spicy sausage and mushrooms.
We live and breathe the North Coast. We know exactly where to find the best grapes in Sonoma, Alexander Valley, Lake County and Napa. We looked to the Sonoma County for this red blend’s backbone~ a Cabernet Sauvignon with complex layers of flavor. Additional Cabernet from Lake County’s volcanic soils gave the wine its concentrated flavor. In Napa and Alexander Valley’s benchland vineyards, we discovered Merlot grapes with sof t tannins and earthy notes. We aged the wine in oak barrels to add body and spice to this smooth blend.
65.6% Cabernet Sauvignon, 33.7% Merlot
