Sunset - Sangiovese Blend, 2018
Shipped and sold by Tender Hope Winery
- Cabernet Sauvignon
Tasting Note: A medium body wine with aromas of cranberry and raspberry and flavours of cherry, peach, coffee and pecan.
The grapes for this wine were hand selected from Six Prong Vineyard 20 years old Sangiovese vines, and Cabernet Sauvignon from Painted Hills and Red Willow Vineyards in the Horse Heaven Hills in the Columbia Valley. The Cabernet Sauvignon gives depth and structure to the wine and serves as a compliment to the red fruit and high acidity of the Sangiovese. Producing a complex, enjoyable and food friendly wine.
The 2018 vintage was a featured wine in January's wine club package, 2021.
