Production Notes
The fruit for our 2013 North Forty Red was harvested between August 31 - Sept. 26, 2013 with an average Brix of 24.8. After 7-9 days of fermentation on the skins, the resulting wine was pressed and finished fermentation in Stainless Steel tanks. The wine was then aged on new and used French Oak for approximately 6 months. The blend for our 2013 North Forty Red is comprised of primarily Petit Verdot and Tannat.
Winemaker Notes
The 2013 North Forty Red is highly pigmented purple in hue with a depth of color, which makes it appear almost black. Aromatically the wine displays substantial dark berry fruit, accompanied by mocha, and a modicum of vanilla. The wine is creamy and dense. Flavors of black raspberry and blackberry are commingled with dark chocolate which is contributed from aging on French Oak. While the blend has significant tannins, it is mouthwatering.

For me it had just the right smoothness, aroma and complexity. I had it with cheddar, and look for the opportunity to find it again.
