2019 Red Thread Howell Mountain Red Blend
47% Zinfandel: 41% Cabernet Sauvignon: 12% Petite Sirah
Dark garnet in color with pronounced aromatics of black cherry, leather, black pepper and a toasty finish. Full bodied with elevated spice and slight components of new French oak. Balanced forward fruit of black currents with a long-weighted finish. Plenty of mountain tannin to enjoy for many years to come.
