2015 L. Preston

Field Notes

Winemaker Notes
The 2015 vintage of our L. Preston Red Rhone Blend has an incredible depth. All of the grapes were harvested and fermented separately in stainless steel tanks. The wine was then transferred to mostly neutral French and American Oak until the decision for the final blend was made. As you smell deeper into the wine you find notes of raspberry, blackberry, tobacco and a hint of vanilla. A firm tannic backbone and a supple acidity hold this blend together well, providing a sound structure for the red fruit core. As is normally the case, this wine will reward patience in the cellar and will develop well for ten years or more.
