Gravelly soils are responsible for some of the world’s greatest wines. With their superior draining properties and lack of nutrients, they encourage better balanced vines, less sprawl, smaller berries and more intense wines. Gravel Bed Red, as the name suggests, is a proprietary blend showcasing some of the best gravelly sites in Sonoma County. - Case of 12
Description

Details

Tasting Notes - As someone at the winery put it, Gravel Bed Red is a delicious confluence of geology and hedonism. I prefer to think of it as rich, lush and juicy! The Cabernet imparts blackberry, cassis and cedar to the nose and structure and weight to the palate. The Merlot adds black cherry and dried herbs. The Zinfandel brings spice and baked berry pie to the party. The oak is subtle, the alcohol is restrained and the tannins are soft. For a wine created for current consumption, it is a surprisingly deep and complex.

This wine takes a while to open up. So don't rely on an aerator. Decant it. Then you'll get lots of favors. At first it's a little thinner than I hoped particularly given its 14.5 alcohol level, which is quite an achievement.
