Joel Gott Palisades CA Red Blend 2015
82 In Stock
Our 2015 Palisades California red wine has aromas of raspberry, plum, black currant, leather, toasted vanilla and anise. On the palate, bright red fruit flavors lead to smooth tannins and subtle acidity on the mid-palate with the light sweetness of vanilla on the long, delicate finish.
To make a well-balanced red wine, we blended Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Petite Sirah, Malbec and Cabernet Franc from three different appellations in California. Fruit from Lake County adds structured tannins and minerality. The cooler, windy Monterey appellation produces smaller, more concentrated fruit clusters. Rounding out the blend, fruit from Lodi is characterized by rich flavors and soft texture.
After fermentation, the wine was aged in 1 & 2- year-old American oak to complement the flavors and tannins of the wine and soften the mid-palate.
