We always build this style to be enjoyed with a smooth feel, big fruit, and that classic taste of great Washington red wines. A full one-half of the blend is luscious Syrah with one-third Merlot added and 9% Malbec, each round and spicy. Small portions of aromatic Cinsault, Petit Verdot, Sangiovese, Grenache, and Viognier make up the dynamic character. It's ready to drink at summer barbecues or through winter meals. Aged for months in French oak barrels, giving the red and black fruits added yum factor of cedar, caramel, and chocolate notes. You new affordable favorite for any day enjoyment with friends and family.
The number preceding the NV indicates how many Notebook blends we have produced. For over 30 years we have been crafting wines that are more compelling and interesting than singles vintage and varietal wines by employing the centuries old practice of blending wine lots from multiple vintages (Vertical Blending) with multiple grape varieties (Horizontal Blending). Each lot of wine is carefully selected each year for Notebook Red Blend based upon the mature flavors of the older vintages and the vibrant fruit characteristics of the younger vintages. The result is a wine that offers fruit, structure, approachability, and exceptional value.
