WINEMAKING

Our winemakers turn to different parts of the vineyards to source the fruit for our Belle Ambiance Dark Red Wine Blend – warmer areas for ripe fruit flavors and cooler sections for acidity and structure. fruit for this wine was picked during the cool of the night, when the flavors and tannin ripeness had reached their peak. After being delivered to the winery, the fruit was de-stemmed and left to cold soak for 24 hours before beginning fermentation. 100% of the wine for this blend underwent malolactic fermentation. A portion of the blend was aged on a combination of French and American oak for several months.

TASTING NOTE

Swirl this wine in the glass and bask in the vivid aromas of raspberry, blackberry, caramel and cocoa with a subtle hint of vanilla. Then, discover concentrated flavors of fig jam, dark chocolate and toasted marshmallow lifted by a hint of baking spice on the finish. This full-bodied wine delivers round, yet structured tannins, balanced acidity and a lengthy, juicy finish.
