A blend of 60% Merlot, 36% Cabernet Sauvignon, and 4% Malbec.  Opaque ruby color. Lifted aromas of black cherry, cedar, and crushed cocoa nibs. Energetic with impressive lift on entry, waves of juicy ripe fruits flood the palate, revealing black plum, cherry, and raspberry. All this is framed by a plethora of soft, silken, plump tannins supported by a firm backbone of mouthwatering acidity. The finish lasts for minutes on end, revealing layers of minerality, savory crushed herbs, and elegant dried red florals. 

95 Points - Meridith May, The Tasting Panel ~ A soft but serious blend that shows the virtues of California’s 2021 North Coast vintage to great advantage, this is a blend of 60% Merlot, 36% Cabernet Sauvignon and 4% Malbec. Very rich and ripe at a stated alcohol level of 14.9%, this nevertheless shows so much linear energy from intense mixed berry fruit that it never seems overblown or formless.

94 Points - Antonio Galloni, vinous.com ~ The 2021 Red Wine is a dark, sensual beauty. Black cherry, plum, licorice, mocha, new leather and tobacco are all beautifully amplified in this forward, succulent blend. There's tons of immediacy and depth here.

Production Notes
Arriving in small, hand-picked lugs from the vineyards, the clusters were hand sorted, de-stemmed and hand sorted again, berry by berry. A two-day cold soak was followed by primary fermentation in small, open-top stainless-steel tanks. Following an extended maceration, the fruit was gently pressed and the wine moved to barrel for secondary fermentation. The wine aged for 22 months in rare 60% new French artisan oak barrels with minimal racking. Multiple blending trials determined the final blend, which we bottled unfined and unfiltered.
