Secret Indulgence Emancipation Red Blend 2015
Emancipation, a California produced Rhone varietal blend, challenges the norms and intrigues from the first sip. This wine is smooth, bright and juicy, yet delicate and refined. Bright red cherry on the front of the palate leads to a briary herbaceous quality on the finish. This blend is palate coating, with a long, lingering finish and structure to pair well with rich foods.
Serve with beef striploin or veal medallions with truffle jus.
Blend: 49% Grenache, 29% Syrah, 11% Petite Sirah, 11% Mourvedre

In a world where extravagance is celebrated and imagination is boundless, a new age of enlightenment begins... Introducing Secret Indulgence, a new, borderless portfolio of wines. This unique collection is a collaboration between Jean-Charles Boisset and thirteen winemakers from his family estates in France and California, who have created a wine world without bounds, embracing the freedom to create a portfolio of daring, limited-production wines on the cutting edge of style!
A major force on the global playing field, California is the world’s fourth largest wine-producing region on the planet and the majority of land under vine here is devoted to red varieties, covering nearly double the vineyard acreage of whites.
While the state’s incredibly diverse terrain and microclimates allow for countless red wine styles, the one factor unifying all California red wine is the abundance of sunshine and a long, consistent growing season, which leads to well-developed and fully ripened fruit.
Sonoma County, nestled between Napa Valley and the Pacific Ocean, claims great variability in geography and microclimates. Here world-class Pinot Noir is possible from Sonoma’s cooler sites while old, gnarly Zinfandel vines survived Prohibition.
