This vintage will be released in Fall 2019.
The Casteñada Red often marks the end of our harvest season as its varietals are usually the last to be picked. Since this wine is a field blend, we have more than 6 different varietals that go into the fermentor at the same time (~25% of which are white grapes). On the palate you'll find velvety tannins, mouth-coating violet, and black currant with a lingering finish. 2016 was unique as white grape yields were slightly higher, lending beautiful aromatics on the nose. This wine holds a very special place in our hearts as it honors our tasting room, the Adobe, and the rich history of Sonoma in how it is farmed, crafted, and bottled.
