Winemaker's Notes

I am super excited to continue making our amazing Homefront Red! Not only do we get to help out a lot of deserving service members and their families through our donations to Operation Homefront, but we also get to make a really fun wine in the process. This year’s Homefront Red 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. This is a great wine for parties and socializing, in addition to being a great food wine. Pair it with a pot roast or simply your favorite burger. It will stand up to the richest of meats. Simply put, this is a ‘Goode’ wine for a great cause.
