2016 Red Blend
What we love
This wine is a harmonious blend of Petite Sirah and Cabernet Sauvignon that boasts so much depth and fragrance. Interesting notes of dried violets, black olives and cedar combine with fresh blackberries and cherries. Given the freshness of the fruit flavors and its overall juiciness, this wine is an easy sipper and a great accompaniment to a wide range of foods, from beef to pork and even your favorite pizza.
About this Wine
The 2016 Merisi Red Blend is one of the best insider wines, crafted by a tiny “mom & pop” Sonoma winery with terrific winemaking talent.
The Petite Sirah was sourced from two vineyards, Ceja Family in Sonoma Valley and Diener Ranch in Lake County, where the Petite Sirah vines are 80 years old. Merisi complimented the Petite Sirah with Cabernet Sauvignon, adding about 6% to the final blend to give the wine extra oomph and complexity.
All the fruit for this blend was grown organically and sustainably. Grapes were harvested by hand and fermented naturally to compliment the conscientious farming practices. It was then aged in barrels (30% new oak) for 20 months.
