Alexander Valley Vineyards Homestead Red Wine
Homestead Red Blend celebrates winemaking in Northern Sonoma County's Alexander Valley. This Wetzel Family Selection is a blend of three of our favorite grapes - Cabernet Sauvignon, Zinfandel and Syrah. Each varietal adds a different flavor profile to this well balanced wine. Winemaker Kevin Hall selected Cabernet Sauvignon with richness, body and elegant structure to anchor the blend, then added Zinfandel for spicy notes, and choose Syrah lots with great fruit and dark color for the bright berry flavors and floral aromatics in the blend.
Moderate temperatures at bloom resulted in greater fruit set than . Consistent mild to warm days without serious heat spikes during early ripening produced heavier clusters and cluster thinning happened more than once in many blocks. The favorable weather allowed the grapes to reach optimal flavor development. The individual lots for Homestead Red Blend were picked, fermented and barrel aged separately to maximize complexity and broaden the flavors in the glass.
This dark purple colored wine has aromas of dusty cherry, plum, blueberry, vanilla, blackberry jam and violets. In the glass there are flavors of chocolate, dark black fruits, plum, cherry, oak and vanilla. There are lush tannins and a long lasting finish.
Food Pairing: Perfect with red meats

Bottle Size: .750
