2016 El Llano Red Wine Blend

A playful experiment after an abundant harvest in 2002 gave birth to this unique blend of “step-brother” grapes. The name pays homage to Rolando’s birthplace of El Llano, Michoacán, Mexico.

Vineyard Notes
The 2016 vintage was a cooler season without the normal high heat, which provided longer hang time for the grapes to develop, resulting in wines with aromatic intensity and nuance. The 2016’s have dark flavor profiles but with softer curves and textural depth.
Production Notes
A blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Malbec, and Syrah, 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. IN
Tasting Notes
El Llano seduces the senses with rich aromas of dark fruit, clove, black pepper, cassis, and dried fig, with floral whispers of violets and dried rose, followed by dusty earth, tobacco leaf, and bittersweet chocolate. A rich round entry of black dried fruit – cassis, boysenberry, blackberry – with a kiss of bittersweet chocolate leads on the palate. Vanilla bean and sweet oak nuances follow through to a firm, well-balanced, and 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 braised lamb shoulder with fennel and orange. Manchego, made from sheep’s milk in the La Mancha region of Spain, would make an excellent cheese pairing.
