2016 CVW Il Padrino
Santa Ynez Valley
50% Sangiovese (Vandale Vineyard/Woodstock Vineyard), 40% Merlot (Camp Four), 10% Syrah (Tierra Alta)
This blend is composed of 50% Sangiovese, 40% Merlot and 10% Syrah. This Super Tuscan-style red blend has lovely fruit elements. It smells of baked plum and rhubarb pie, laced with tiny hints of cocoa. Once it hits your tongue, there are bursts of black cherry flirting with elements of cedar and cola. This wine finishes with subtly earthy notes, redwood, and good tannins. This is a wine that you will want to get to know better and better.
