Tasting Notes:

This Vino Rosso is nothing like you have ever tasted from Ventosa! This big red blend will enchant your taste-buds with hints of plum, dried fig, tobacco and clove, bing cherries, black caps & leather and a licorice root finish. You may find white pepper on the nose, as well.

Winemaker Notes:

Why is this blend so much different? We noticed that the Lemberger block used in our Vino Rosso was infected with Leafroll Virus, a common virus, particularly in red grapes which significantly reduces the quality and pigment of the grape. For this reason we decided to go “off roading” with this blend and let Jenna, our winemaker, have full control!  She added a touch of Tempranillo and Zinfandel to mimic the leather and smoky flavors of Lemberger. In this blend you will find Cabernet Franc, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Syrah, Tempranillo and Zinfandel.  Successive blending of oak aged estate red varietals.
