The 2015 ROWEN red blend is a lush and elegant wine consisting of wonderful high elevation, mountain fruit. The wine has aromas of black raspberries, cocoa and black pepper from the co-fermented Viognier. On the palate, the wine is balanced and structured from the Cabernet Sauvignon with notes of blackberries, cassis, nutmeg, and vanilla. Co-fermenting the Syrah with the Viognier is a classic Northern Rhone technique which adds an exotic floral element to the finished wine as well as a rounder mouthfeel. Enjoy this wine now with sharp cheeses and charcuterie, braised lamb shanks, grilled filet mignon or cellar for enjoyment for years to come.
Blend: 55% Cabernet Sauvignon, 26% Malbec, 17% Syrah, 2% Viognier
