Our twelfth Notebook red wine is a delicious Merlot blend with traditional red varieties that flourish in our hot, dry climate. Delicious! Made and drinks like a far more expensive wine with all the ripe power and texture 2017’s vintage. Aromatically rich and delicious to quaff, Notebook is ready to drink from summer barbecues through to winter meals. The wine’s aromatics display savory barrel-aged complexity. Heaps of youthful red fruits like black cherries, plums, red currants and figs wrapped with cedar, caramel and chocolate. Succulent smooth fruit begins, with flavors of baker’s chocolate, black cherry, blackberry, toast, dried herbs, tobacco and cola finish. It’s a deliciously affordable wine.
The number preceding the NV indicates how many Notebook blends we have produced. For over 35 years we have been crafting wines that are more compelling and interesting than single 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.
