2017 Equipo Red Blend
"Equipo" is the Spanish term for "team," and we are fortunate to have had the same team ever since we first planted our vines. As an homage to them, we allocated a portion of our vineyard to our “equipo,” and gave them full control over that section. The crew is entrusted with farming decisions regarding irrigation, fertilization, pest control, pruning and everything else Mother Nature might throw at them! A portion of the profits are given back to the team as a small token of our appreciation for all that they do.
The 2017 vintage of our Equipo is showing its potential right out of the gate! The aromatics are powerful and hit you as soon as the wine touches the glass. Notes of fresh blueberry, cola, and black cherry greet the nose, with hints of graphite and new leather. Upon first sip, the rich flavors immediately coat the palate. Initial notes of blackberry and plum are followed by subtle flavors of honey and baking spices.
This wine demonstrates intense fruit and fantastic structure. Vibrant, intense, and robust, the finish is smooth, but lingering. Elegant and polished, this wine is drinking beautifully and is the perfect choice to share with family, friends, or your “Equipo!”
