2016 Red Wine "Randolph"
Our 2016 Randolph is a delightful wine. Possessing vibrant fruit notes on the nose and juicy flavors. This easy-going wine pairs well with a wide range of cuisine. Admittedly an “atypical” blend, each varietal lends its strengths to this vintage. Malbec brings bright fruit character and stout acidity. Zinfandel adds darker fruit character to the mix. The Tempranillo is responsible for the underlying soft tannin structure that plays a supportive role. The Petite Sirah adds weight to the mid-palate, making the wine a bit more contemplative. A “touch” of Cabernet Sauvignon helps bring in a lovely smooth finish. The spirit of this wine is without pretense, good-natured and easy to enjoy.
