The R Collection Field Blend harkens back to the early days in California viticulture when vineyards had several different varietals planted together, and an entire vineyard would be harvested and vinified together, often producing remarkably unique wines from multiple different varietals. Our winemaking team has revived this tradition of blending multiple varietals together to produce a standout wine.
The 2009 R Collection Field Blend brings together 7 varietals: Cabernet Sauvignon, Zinfandel, Petite Sirah, Syrah, Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot.
Red fruits of raspberry and bing cherry come forward on the nose, followed by aromas of anise, exotic spices of cardamom, and plum pudding. Very soft and supple on the mouth, with ripe, juicy tannins. Strawberry notes are vivid on the palate, and are intermingled with hints of cedar and a subtle tobacco finish.
Smooth & Supple
This is a very smooth blend with cherry, berry, and plum fruit forward and a spicy aftertast. Very nice wine for the price.
