2015 El Llano Red Wine Blend

A playful experiment after an abundant harvest in 2002 gave birth to this unique blend. The name pays homage to Rolando's grandparents, and to his birthplace of El Llano, Michoacán, Mexico.

2015

Varietal
Blend

Appellation
Napa Valley

Tannin
50% new French oak

Aging
22 months

Alcohol %
14.5

Vineyard Notes
A perfect vintage despite the continued drought conditions. Slightly cooler and drier than in recent vintages, veraison, and subsequently harvest, came early, but with plenty of hang-time to develop their flavors. The result was beautifully concentrated fruit of outstanding quality.
Production Notes
A blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Syrah, Malbec, and a touch of Petit Verdot, the grapes are chosen from three of our estate vineyards located in Coombsville, Oak Knoll, and Mt Veeder. Twenty-two months of aging in 40% new French oak, and 10% new American oak, creates an approachable, balanced, and elegant wine.
Tasting Notes
Seductively rich aromas of dark fruit, clove, black pepper, cassis, and dried fig with floral whispers of violets and dried rose precede a rich round entry. Flavors of black dried fruit - cassis, boysenberry, and blackberry - follow with a kiss of bittersweet chocolate surrounded by vanilla bean and sweet oak nuances trailing through to a well-balanced, long, finish. Enjoy now or up to 15 years.
Food Pairing Notes
Pair with a hearty dish of St Louis-style ribs. For an elevated dish, try duck breast with a red wine raspberry sauce. Manchego, made from sheep’s milk in the La Mancha region of Spain, would make an excellent cheese pairing.
