Food Pairing: The 2018 Old Soul Red would be equally at home on a Wednesday night served with carne asada tacos as it would be on a Saturday evening with a sophisticated mixed grill and roasted root vegetables.
Wine Spectator 92 Points: “Tones of dark chocolate and rich black fruit give an intriguing personality to this full-bodied, moderately tannic wine. Cocoa notes melt on the palate as the flavors expand through a lingering finish.”
Winemaker Notes: “The grapes were picked at full maturity, de-stemmed and gently transferred into fermenters with 50% whole berries. They soaked at a cool temperature for four to seven days, at which point native yeast fermentation began in both open and closed top fermenters. The free run juice was aged in 10% new thin-stave French oak and four year seasoned American oak for 18 months, which included native malolactic fermentation. The wine is savory, rich, and dense with ripe tannins that wrap around a core of fruit leading to a long, juicy finish.”
