2019 Articondo Proprietary Red
NEW RELEASE! This 2019 vintage of our Articondo is a cuveé of all four red wine varietals that we grow on our Estate in Santa Ynez and is a true testament to the classic Bordeaux blend profile. This wine is fondly named after Articondo Grassini, the first member of the Grassini family to emigrate to the United States from Pisa, Italy.
This medium-bodied wine opens with elegant notes of red currant and flambéed boysenberry, along with hints of cardamom and baking spice. Traces of black cherry, pomegranate, and stewed plum coat the palate, laced with notes of dark chocolate. The four varietals work harmoniously, creating a savory, supple mouthfeel. The focused flavors and bright acid balance perfectly in this refined blend that is sure to please.
Our 2019 Articondo is showing beautifully upon release, and the tannins will continue to soften with some more time on your cellar shelves. If you would prefer to drink this wine immediately upon release, we recommend decanting this wine prior to serving to allow the nuanced flavors to unfold!
