Buck Shack Red Wine 2016

The spring of 2016 was a steady sine wave of hot and cool days starting harvest off on August 20th. Reds started to trickle in during early September. The season went smoothly until October 20th brought a deluge of rain with a fair amount of fruit left hanging. The varieties left to weather the storm were hearty, open clusters that handled it just fine. We finished up harvest on October 24th, ending an eight-week vintage, one of our longest, but best on record.

Tasting Notes

Our Syrah and Petite Sirah provide the juicy, yet structured base. We blend in small amounts of Merlot for a fleshy mid palate, Cab Franc for aromatics and tannin, and Barbera for a touch of acidity and balance. Enjoy!
