Folded Hills August Red Wine 2017 Santa Ynez Valley, California

Ruby in color with a wide reddish rim.

Fruity nose of bing cherries, blueberries, spices, barnyard, earth, vegetables, coffee and peppercorn.
Smells like a California Pinot Noir.

Medium bodied with medium acidity and nice legs.

Dry on the palate with blueberries, cherries, strawberries, light oak, spices, vegetables, herbs and black pepper.

Medium finish with soft tannins and cherries.

This Is a very nice Rhône blend from Santa Ynez Valley, in California. Nicely balanced with a nice and soft mouthfeel.

Easy drinking and fruit forward. Good right out of the bottle and good by itself or with food.

I paired it with cheeses and crackers, and was very nice with the Brie cheese.

A blend of 67% Grenache and 33% Syrah.

13.9% alcohol by volume.

88 points.
