Sophie's Estate Blend - 2018

2018 Sophie’s Blend

This impressive Bordeaux Blend was grown in a new vineyard on the eastern side of the Santa Clara Valley just east of Gilroy and is carefully tended by George and Lynda Green. They meticulously farm this vineyard to maximize quality. The 2018 growing season was ideal and one of the best in a decade. Red fruit, dark cherry and barrel spice greet your nose followed by notes of cinnamon, nutmeg, pepper and toasted marshmallow. In the mouth, lush, youthful red fruit and medium tannins make for a great wine to enjoy with a BBQ.
