2018 RABBLE RED BLEND
LABEL STORY: The Rabble labels are renditions of historical wood block prints from the Nuremberg Chronicle (late 1400’s), textured and tactile, depicting nature’s wrath. Nature is ruthless when it goes ignored. This label illustrates the Apocalyptic Comet falling upon Florence with the Unicorn and Phoenix.
VINEYARD: Mossfire Ranch
Planted in 1996 on steep hillsides and a rolling valley at the confluence of sun, snow and sea. The vineyard weathers 40 ° diurnal shifts. The extremity of the climate creates fruit of uncommon concentration and uniform ripeness.
Our 2018 Rabble Red Blend sports vibrant aromatics lead by dark cherry and blackberries, characteristic of the vintage. Chocolate and coffee notes add another layer of complexity. The rich and decadent flavor profile is driven with blueberry pie, cocoa powder, and boysenberry. The 2018 boasts silky tannins with a flutter of oak on the back end, framed with fading dried dark berry flavors.
