Homestead Red Blend celebrates wine making in Northern Sonoma County’s Alexander Valley.

Homestead Red Blend celebrates winemaking in Northern Sonoma County’s Alexander Valley. The 2019 is a blend of six of our favorite grapes. Each varietal adds complexity and dimension to this well balanced wine. Winemaker Kevin Hall anchored the blend with rich, concentrated Merlot, added Zinfandel for spicy notes, Cabernet Sauvignon for elegant structure, Grenache for berry flavors, Mourvedre for additional texture, and Syrah for more bright spicy flavors and floral aromatics.

Although the weather was a bit cooler than usual early in the 2019 growing season, there were no unusual temperature swings during bud break or flowering. Moderate temperatures continued through the summer, allowing the grapes to mature gradually. After 2018's record setting crop size, 2019 swung back to an average yield.

Each individual lot for Homestead Red Blend was picked, fermented and barrel aged separately in order to  maximize complexity and broaden the flavors in the glass.  This dark purple wine has complex aromas of black cherry, spice, plum, cassis, blueberry, oak and vanilla.  This is a medium  bodied  wine  with  spicy  dark  fruit  flavors  of  berry, plum, cherry,  oak and vanilla.   This is a lush, juicy wine with nice balance and a long structured finish.
