    Winemaker Notes

    The 2017 Triumph is a deep, dark red color. The nose is oaky, sweet, raisiny, rich, robust, and toasty with dark pruny 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 and lush mouthfeel. This wine has backbone, great body, and is robust, complex and velvety.

    1849, California
    In many ways our story begins back in our State history. In 1849, many settlers flocked to Northern California in the hopes of coming into a financial windfall simply by picking up gold nuggets right off the ground. But not everyone struck it rich and as the thirst for gold waned by the end of 1855, gold fever turned into vine fever - with many settlers finding liquid gold in the form of California wine.

    Our love of California wine coupled with our passion for California street art inspired our line of urban art labeled California wines. Every handcrafted bottle of 1849 Wine reflects this artistic spirit and the dedication we have for the art of wine making.

    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.

    Sonoma County wines are produced with carefully selected grape varieties 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 red wines like 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 red 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 resulting in a wide variety of red wine styles. Blending can be utilized to enhance balance or create complexity, lending different layers of flavors and aromas. For example, a red wine blend 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.

    How to Serve Red Wine

    A common piece of advice is to serve red wine at “room temperature,” but this suggestion is imprecise. After all, room temperature in January is likely to be quite different than in August, even considering the possible effect of central heating and air conditioning systems. The proper temperature to aim for is 55° F to 60° F for lighter-bodied reds and 60° F to 65° F for fuller-bodied wines. How much does this matter?

    How Long Does Red Wine Last?

    Once opened and re-corked, a bottle stored in a cool, dark environment (like your fridge) will stay fresh and nicely drinkable for a day or two. There are products available that can extend that period by a couple of days. As for unopened bottles, optimal storage means keeping them on their sides in a moderately humid environment at about 57° F. Red wines stored in this manner will stay good – and possibly improve – for anywhere from one year to multiple decades. Assessing how long to hold on to a bottle is a complicated science. If you are planning long-term storage of your reds, seek the advice of a wine professional.
