2013 Raptor Red

2013 Raptor Red
2013 Raptor Red
As our flagship wine, Raptor Red must paint a beautifully complex portrait from beginning to end. Its color is a deep purple which pales at the edges. Savor this wine over the course of a few hours to enjoy the subtle changes as it breaths. You’ll notice aromas of liqourice, black current, and blackberry following a bouquet of black pepper and wet pavement. The palate is bold with red current, black cherry and cedar. The finish is pleasantly filled with oak and dates. With medium acity and great tannin structure, this wine will age well for many years to come. Cheers!
Tasting notes

The color is dark red with an intense burgundy edge.  The aromas take a minute to open up, they start off like leather and light oak but give way to nice dried cherries and mocha.  The fruit elements open with some cherry flavor but are more on the cola, cocoa, tobacco, and dried herb notes.  This wine has exceptionally rich and bold flavors, complemented by ample body, elegant silky tannins and ripe sweet fruits leaving a lingering finish.

Production notes

Raptor Red is our flagship wine, it is a Bordeaux style red blend made from the best barrels in our cellar each vintage. Throughout the year the winemaking team evaluates the different lots and picks out their favorite barrels to go into this blend. The blend is a combination of Petite Verdot, Cabernet Sauuvignon, and Cabernet Franc.  All the grapes are handpicked and fermented separately. After fermentation the wine is barrel aged for up 24 months then bottled. The wine showcases the winemaking style and barrel selection in order to create a wine that drinks great now but is made to lay down and age.
