A smooth, medium bodied and easy drinking wine that strikes a lovely balance with its blackberry, plum and dark cherry fruit characters coupled with classic varietal leafy tones. Made from Old Vine Cabernet Franc with a harmonious blob of sibling Cabernet Sauvignon. The story and overall package may be light-hearted, but the wine inside is as ever, seriously good with oodles of drinkability!
Tie-Dye Red Blend is the wine with ultimate harmony. Syrah's structure provides the backbone. Barbera's acidity adds vibrancy. Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot brings a solid core and rich body. Pinot Noir's elegance and length supplements the lingering finish. Tempranillo and Petit Syrah complete blend with a silky mouthfeel and a complex fruit-forward expression.
Zinfandel from Lodi County. With a temperate, Mediterranean climate and sandy loam soils, the Lodi appellation produces many outstanding wines, but is particularly renowned for its sumptuous, richly-flavored red Zinfandels.
Dense black color. Smells richly of ripe raspberry, strawberry, red cherry in the opening whiffs, then the bouquet turns peppery, spicy, jammy after further aeration. Taste profile highlights the cherry/berry tandem flavors that are medium tannic, piquant, ripe.
