2016 Obsession Red Blend
3 Months New French Oak
50% Merlot, 40% Zinfandel, 10% Petite Sirah
The vineyards were selected from our Lodi and Sierra Foothills vineyards combining the sandy loam soils of Lodi with the iron rich volcanic soils of the Sierra Foothills. Each variety in this wine encompasses the unique quality that is distinctive to it. The Merlot and Zinfandel come from the Lodi (sub AVA Mokelumne River) which is primarily Tokay fine sandy loam soils with some clay mixed in. The Petite Sirah comes from both our vineyards in Lodi and Murphys, which are full of iron and minerals.
Aromas take fold in an instant with an incredible spiciness! Cloves and nutmeg; chocolate and vanilla beans give way to flavors of blueberries, plums, chocolate and mint that swirl in your mouth of this rich, well-balanced and full wine. The finish is bold and lengthy.
Food Pairing Notes
The Obsession Red Blend is an ideal complement to many types of cuisine, but is especially tasty with grilled meats such as rib-eye, pork and barbecue chicken, in addition to slow roasted veggie stew or an intensely flavored mirage of pasta with wild mushrooms.
