2011 Proprietary Blend

Our 2011 Proprietary Red continues the practice of blending the different red varietals grown at Richard Dinner Vineyards, to deliver to you the climat of this beautiful property.  Our blending strategy is not set to formula; instead it changes year to year, bringing you the best of each vintage.  2011 was a long growing season due to cooler weather, one that yielded beautiful fruit with lively acids. This blend is comprised of equal parts Merlot, Malbec, and Syrah.  As you can come to expect, the trinity come together to create a wine that is beautifully textured, gracefully structured, and remarkably balanced – ripe, but restrained fruit, and not overpowered by oak. The Merlot comes in first bringing ripe black cherry and plum; the Syrah follows with leathery notes of coffee and chocolate; and finally the Malbec delivers dried flowers and a burst of hibiscus. It is an eager and exciting wine, bursting out of the glass and ready to be enjoyed.  It is practically everything you would want in a red wine. 600 cases produced. 14.4% alcohol by volume. 750mL
