Our Blend 25 offers a multi-vineyard palette that gives limitless creativity in crafting this seductive, round and very flavorful wine. This lush blend offers aromatics of blue fruit, espresso roast, and with hints of freshly cracked black pepper. The palate is laden with flavors of huckleberry jam, cherry cola, and exotic spice box. Blend 25 exhibits a voluptuous mouth feel of velvety tannins and fine-tuned acidity create a seamless deeply satisfying wine. Full bodied and complex, this blend has plenty of backbone to cellar well over the next 8-10 years.
