2019 Honest John's Red
Wild strawberries with cherries and black pepper are the first to show with raspberry and blackberry layered in behind. Subtle notes of toasted oak and caramel also play a role. This is a fruit-forward red with flavours of ripe strawberry, raspberry, blackberry, and cherry followed by subtle sweet vanilla and oak. The palate is plush making this easy-drinking red wine a good companion.
The 2019 vintage started with a very warm spring and summer which provided earlier season ripening The Fall was cooler than usual, allowing the ripe fruit flavours to be harnessed from each grape variety while maintaining the acidity balance in the final wines. Each grape variety was harvested at its optimal point of flavour development.
