Wine Notes

2014 Sonoma County
Heritage

$30.00

Heritage is a red blend which celebrates the perseverant and relentless spirit of our forefathers. This wine is a tribute to our proud heritage and commemorates the many bold journeys that shaped our great country. The 2013 is bold and rich with fruit-forward aromas of blackberry,boysenberry, and black cherry followed by violet, vanilla, and black licorice. Its flavors are intense with black fruit that meld together beautifully with the sweet oak and vanilla bean on the palate. With its silky texture, the tannins slowly unwind for a lingering finish.
