Elsom Cellars, Isabella Red Blend

Seductively aromatic and full of deep and sophisticate flavors, 15% Clifton Vineyard Merlot and 60% Cabernet, 15% Snipes Canyon Ranch Vineyard Malbec, and 10% Alder Ridge Malbec demand a steady hand to capture the contrast of Isabella’s rich texture and red velvet hue along with balancing tones of plum, high tone berry characteristics, and sweet caramel. Harvested in late Fall, batches were kept separate, destemmed, and fermented in open top vats. Gentle manual punch downs maximized the skin contact and allowed a more balanced fruit and tannin integration. Barrel aged 23 months.100 cases.
