This is a handcrafted blend of Merlot, Sangiovese, Cabernet
Franc, Cabernet Sauvignon, Zinfandel and Syrah. As with all
our wines, the grapes were hand-picked and grown in small
Palisade vineyards which have well-drained soils. This balanced
wine supports a complex range of aromas and flavors. Merlot,
Cabernet Sauvignon, Syrah, Zinfandel and Cabernet Franc add
structure and complex fruit. Sangiovese provides an acidic
accent with notes of strawberry, cherry and pomegranate.
Palisade Red yields complicated scents of sweet pie cherries
and raspberries. The ripe fruit character is surrounded by
oak tones of leather and vanilla. Seeking softer tannins and
very broad, full mid-palate flavors we crafted this medium-bodied
wine to be enjoyable now.
