2017 Red Door
Red Door is a wine blended to take advantage of our best small lots that work together in the most rich and flavorful way, regardless of variety or appellation. In 2017, Cabernet Sauvignon from Windy Flats vineyard had the most intense flavors and Baker vineyard provided spice and structure. Small lots of Syrah and Malbec were useful together in building depth and complexity. They have wonderful individuality that would be lost in a big blend, so this wine can give them a place to show off. From these outstanding lots we created a small quantity of an amazing wine. The 2017 Red Door offers purity and finesse, with ample blue fruits, leafy herbs, and damp earth-like aromas and flavors. It is impeccably balanced, and has fine, polished tannins that frame the finish. Aged 16 months in 65% new French oak, it’s a wine that can be enjoyed today yet will keep for 15-20 years.
