Made in the French Burgundian style- crisp, complex flavors, well balanced with a mid structure that delivers a long and complex finish.
The nose starts with aromas of sweet hay, fresh wafts of sweet pine, jasmine, lily, plum and licorice. It then switches to an air of ocean with a hint of oysters, a whiff of coco- nut all wrapped in a crystalline and pure sensation. It switches again, to summer and tropical fruits with notes of pear, vanilla, apricot tart and pineapple.
The mouthfeel has a rich viscosity counter- balanced by a bracing acidity.
The finish is incredibly long with loads of ripe pear and a hint of banana.
The goal in creating our initial offering of Keanu Red Blend was to create a special wine, one that expresses the personality and flavor contributions of three varietals grown in two exceptional vineyards in the Carneros and Atlas Peak wine regions.
We wanted a blend that expresses the richness, com- plexity and deep flavors of a Cabernet Sauvignon. The addition of Merlot softens the tannins and brings its smooth, branchy blackberry character. The Syrah adds notes of blueberry and spice filling out the structure and flavor profile of the wine.
The Merlot and Syrah is grown on Broadway Vineyards’ sustainable, Estate vineyard in the Los Carneros AVA in Sonoma. The Cabernet Sauvignon is from Hesperian’s Kitoko vineyard in the prestigious, mountain region of the Atlas Peak AVA in Napa.
The wine is medium body, very smooth and silky. Experience a blast of flavors, with caramel, cranberries, blackberries, and espresso.
Discover a basket of fresh fruits with strawberries, cherries, blueberry, blackberry, enhanced by notes of orange peel and black pepper. A savory layer of aromas underlays the fresh fruit.
The finish is fresh, clean, sweet, and juicy. A delightfully enjoyable wine.
