Red Blend

2013 Minnesota Red
Alexander Valley

This wine is another passion project for me as a native of the Land of 10,000 Lakes. This Alexander Valley Red Blend - consisting of Cabernet Sauvignon, Petit Verdot, Zinfandel and Merlot - has been aged for 18 months in white oak barrels from Caledonia, Minnesota. Distinct flavors of black currant and blackberry mingle with enticing spicy notes and toasted vanilla. Skol Vikings!

Winemaker Notes

This year’s California Red Blend is a soft red wine comprised of different varietals to create complexity and to show off the great fruit flavors that our grapes in California contribute. The nose kicks in with dark aromas of black cherries and blueberries while the first taste mixes things up with raspberries and Bing Cherries. The mouthfeel is rich yet soft and has a nice long finish that invites you to take a second sip.

Food Pairing

 Pair it with a pot roast or simply your favorite burger.
