2020 Equipo Red Blend
Our Equipo project fulfills the "community sustainability" aspect of our overall commitment to sustainable agriculture and is our effort to enhance the quality of life for the folks whose hard work and dedication help us grow superb grapes. We dedicate a portion of the profits from the sale of this cuvée to crew bonuses, and we created an emergency fund for our team to help defray some of the unexpected costs that arise during a serious illness. Our hope is that as our Equipo wine program grows, we will be able to use remaining proceeds to start a scholarship fund for the children of our crew members.
Our 2020 Equipo is showing its potential right out of the gate! Powerful notes of ripe dark cherry, and black plum immediately greet the nose, along with hints of anise, cloves, and crushed violet. Upon first sip, the rich flavors immediately coat the palate. Pronounced notes of plum, blackberry and boysenberry are followed by traces of vanilla and caramel. This wine demonstrates intense fruit and fantastic structure. Vibrant, vivid, 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!"
