A ruby colored wine, bright and flavorful with ripe berry, fruit and spice notes. Aromas and flavors of ripe strawberry, cranberry, vanilla and dark chocolate. Soft, elegant mouthfeel with refined, silky tannins and smooth finish.
2020 started o with very little rainfall in California. This in turn led to an exceptionally dry and moderately cool winter. These two factors led to a slow start to the growing season. The Spring months were mild with a few warm days in June. The crop set nicely, although bloom and set were slow to pass through to the finish line. The beginning of June brought a few unseasonably warm days that pushed back maturity onto a normal timeline. Harvest began within a few days of our average start date in the third week of August.
Food Pairing Notes
Pair Round Hill Red Blend with a prosciutto flatbread or a simple margherita pizza. Also delicious with an herb-marinated, grilled flank steak, a variety of pasta dishes; soft cheeses and dark chocolate desserts.
