On the rocky flats of our Durell Vineyard estate, we planted a mixed block of red and white Rhône varietals. We harvest and ferment this block together, known as a “field blend” for our Adobe patrons. A unique blend of 25% white and 75% red, has a rabid audience. In 2015 this wine shows off aromas of licorice, spice and sweet dark fruit that wow the senses. This Durell gem has great tannic structure which enables it to age for some time - if you can wait, that is!
This wine is sold out. The 2016 Casteñada Red Blend will be released Fall 2018.
