2010 Red Wine Blend, Lex Julia
Cab-based, Bordeaux Style Red Blend
Superb blend of 55% Cabernet Sauvignon, 30% Merlot, 9% Petite Sirah, and 6% Cabernet Franc. Deep garnet color, medium-body, with notes of graphite, smoke, plum, black currant and tobacco. Excellent and versatile food wine.
The Vineyards associated with this blend are all Alexander Valley, Linde Family Vineyards, Pigoni Ranch and the Harris-Kratka Vineyard. 2010 was a difficult growing season, major heat spikes in July and August followed by early rain in October, we were fortunate and picked just before that first rain.
10% New French Oak, 15% American
