Clay looked for grapes that would deliver rich, ripe and full flavor. Individual parcels were selected from the best regions, then handled and blended separately to maintain the unique fruit characteristics of each. Oak aging was in 30% new French oak for 16 months prior to blending. SAVED is a robust, powerful wine with a big personality and a generous finish.
This Sangiovese is a vibrant red in color, with violet hues, and an intense nose of red fruits. On the palate it is bursting with fruit flavours of red cherries and blackberries. Perfect with tomato-based dishes such as pasta or pizza.
Gran Passione has an intense purple color, tending towards amber with ageing. It is full-bodied with a solid structure due to the elevated alcohol and fine balance between soft tannins and acidity from rich red and black fruits.
The 2012 Annabella red blend is an excellent example of varietal harmony – the magic that happens in blending. The nose invites with dense aromas of spicy plum, blackberry, and black pepper. The mouth is full of juicy dark berries, dark chocolate, and black cherries, and the broad, smooth tannins linger on the smokey finish, long after the wine is gone.
Aromas of ripe blueberries, subtle campfire smoke, and that blackberry patch down the road put summer vacation in your glass. Intense plum, blackberry pie, and toasty spice mingle on the palate, with moderate tannins providing structure and character through the lingering finish. This wine is rich but not soft, bold but not arrogant.
This vintage was amazing and Petite Sirah was top-notch given the perfect growing conditions. The color is about as dark as they come with aromas of black raspberry, blackberry, dark caramel, and purple basil with hints of nutmeg and bourbon. Flavors of intense blueberry pie, sweetened cherries, brown sugar, and subtle tart cranberry fill the mouth. The wine finishes with dried blueberry, mocha, and dusty tannins.
Brilliant deep ruby red color, fruity aromas. Montebuena Red has a spicy vanilla bouquet and is smooth and fruity in the mouth with some well-integrated secondary nuances, full-flavored and a persistent pleasant finish.
