Tasting Notes - On the nose, raspberry and pomegranate notes are accented by vanilla, nutmeg, cinnamon and candied orange zest. The richness of the fruit follows through on the palate, highlighted by hints of earth and sawdust. Mocha inspired tannins and bright acid provide good structure for a persistent finish.
Winemakers Notes - The personality of Niner Red is defined by grapes from each of our three estate vineyards combined into a blend completely unconstrained by varietal or AVA distinctions. Each of our three vineyards produce distinct qualities of which we crafted into this bold and uncompromising blend. Rich Cabernet Franc was used as a foundation due to its dense color. The juiciness of the Merlot acts as a counterbalance to soften the complex and richness of the Cabernet Sauvignon. The addition of the cool climate Grenache and Syrah adds a touch of earth and pepper. Carmenere has a small but important role with it's roasted bell pepper quality. 39% Cabernet Franc, 27% Merlot, 18% Cabernet Sauvignon, 8% Syrah, 4% Carmenere, 4% Grenache. 14.8% ABV.
