The Federalist Honest Red Blend

North Coast California, USA, 2014/2015

 

This wine is formed of a blend of 55% Merlot, 30% Zinfandel and 15% Cabernet Sauvignon grapes.

 

They are sourced from three renowned North Coast American appellations: 68% from Mendocino County, 27% Napa Valley and 5% Sonoma County.

 

Grapes from different blocks are fermented separately to preserve the characteristics of each. After blending, the wine is aged for 15 months in oak barrels, 35% of which are new.

 

The wine shows plum, blackberry and blackcurrant with a hint of spice on the nose, while the palate offers similar dark fruit and spice and a richly textured finish.
