Winemaker Notes

Premier Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon, Zinfandel, Malbec and Petite Sirah combine with lush Syrah from Sonoma to produce an impressive yet approachable red blend encompassing the best fruit California has to offer. This wine revs up with blackberry and mocha aromas (along with a nuance of anise), turning the corner with velvety dark chocolate, black cherry, baking spices and deep ripe fruit from palate to finish. Redline was aged in toasted French oak, enhancing the natural tannin of the varietals with a subtle smokiness. The balanced acidity holds up to a variety of foods such as steak, pizzetta, pork belly and rich pasta.

COMMENTARY: The 2016 Adobe Road Redline is a beautiful expression of how Bordeaux and Rhône grape varieties, plus Zinfandel into an artful red wine. TASTING NOTES: This wine has plenty of muscle as it stretches the palate to uncover the multitude of its flavor nuances. Its persistent aromas and flavors of bold, ripe fruit and smoky oak should pair nicely with a slow, smokehouse-roasted slab of pork ribs. (Tasted: August 9, 2019, San Francisco, CA)

Wine Spectator
Supple, charming and driven, with lively red and dark fruits and notes of licorice, dark berry, mocha, gravel, herb and sage. Cabernet Sauvignon, Zinfandel, Syrah, Petite Sirah and Malbec. Drink now through 2028.
RP 90
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
Medium to deep garnet-purple in color, the 2016 Red Blend Redline opens with compelling exotic spice and fragrant earth notes over a core of baked blackberries and black cherry preserves with hints of underbrush and tilled soil. Full-bodied and chock-full of black fruit and spicy layers, it has a firm frame of chewy tannins and just enough freshness, finishing long.

Reaching up California's coastline and into its valleys north of San Francisco, the North Coast AVA includes six counties: Marin, Solano, Napa, Sonoma, Mendocino and Lake. While Napa and Sonoma enjoy most of the glory, the rest produce no shortage of quality wines in an intriguing and diverse range of styles.

Climbing up the state's rugged coastline, the chilly Marin County, just above the City and most of Sonoma County, as well as Mendocino County on the far north end of the North Coast successfully grow cool-climate varieties like Pinot Noir, Chardonnay and in some spots, Riesling. Inland Lake County, on the other hand, is considerably warmer, and Cabernet Sauvignon, Zinfandel and Sauvignon Blanc produce some impressive wines with affordable price tags.

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.
