1849 Triumph Red Blend 2015
Triumph by 1849 Wine Co. is a premium red blend that is composed of a melting pot of flavors. Made from a combination of Petit Syrah, Syrah, Cabernet Sauvignon, Cab Franc, and Petit Verdot, each grape is individually unique and distinctive. But when they are blended together in the right proportions they form a symbol of unity. This wine is the embodiment of the American philosophy that the whole is greater than the sum of its parts and together we'll triumph.
Deep Dark Red. The nose is oaky, sweet, raisiny, rich, robust, toasty with dark pruney aroma. Fruit forward on the palate you’ll taste raspberry and blackberry jam at the front, dark red fruits like plum and cherry through the mid-palate and hints of chocolate long through the finish. This wine is harmonious, fleshy with excellent depth and complexity. The finish of the Sonoma County Red Blend is long with a round, supple & lush mouthfeel. This wine has backbone, great body, and is robust, complex and velvety.

Home to a diverse array of smaller AVAs with varied microclimates and soil types, Sonoma County has something for every wine lover. Physically twice as large as Napa Valley, the region only produces about half the amount of wine but boasts both tremendous quality and variety. With its laid-back atmosphere and down-to-earth attitude, the wineries of Sonoma are appreciated by wine tourists for their friendliness and approachability. The entire county intends to become a 100% sustainable winegrowing region by 2019.
Grape varieties are carefully selected to reflect the best attributes of their sites—Dry Creek Valley’s consistent sunshine is ideal for Zinfandel, while the warm Alexander Valley is responsible for rich, voluptuous Cabernet Sauvignon. Chardonnay and Pinot Noir are important throughout the county, most notably in the cooler AVAs of Russian River, Sonoma Coast and Carneros. Sauvignon Blanc, Merlot and Syrah have also found a firm footing here.
With hundreds of red grape varieties to choose from, winemakers have the freedom to create a virtually endless assortment of blended wines. In many European regions, strict laws are in place determining the set of varieties that may be used, but in the New World, experimentation is permitted and encouraged. Blending can be utilized to enhance balance or create complexity, lending different layers of flavors and aromas. For example, a variety that creates a fruity and full-bodied wine would do well combined with one that is naturally high in acidity and tannins. Sometimes small amounts of a particular variety are added to boost color or aromatics. Blending can take place before or after fermentation, with the latter, more popular option giving more control to the winemaker over the final qualities of the wine.
