Hiatus Red 2015

  • Blend: P. Sirah 50%, Merlot 22%, Syrah 10%, Cab Franc 10%, Mourvedre 4%, Zinfandel 4%

    Aroma:  summer red berries and ripe cherry

    Palate:  full of black cherry and blackcurrant flavors

    About: soft supple tannins with balanced acidity, medium bodied, easy drinking, uncomplicated, with a lovely finish

    Each variety is hand-picked, hand sorted and barrel aged separately.  During fermentation of each wine the bins were punched down 3 times a day to ensure maximum extraction of color and tannins.  After dryness is reached the wines were then matured separately for 18 months in new and neutral French and American oak prior to blending and bottling.

    Food Pairing Suggestions: One of the wonderful things about our Hiatus is that it can be enjoyed on its own – no food required. However, bringing it along to a BBQ will always impress your friends!
