The Owl Ridge 2017 ‘Tyto’ Red Blend is named for the Tyto barn owl species, which are great for vineyard pest control - plus, owner John Tracy is very fond of owls and has installed several owl boxes throughout his vineyard. This unique blend is comprised of 32% Grenache, 25% Zinfandel, 22% Tannat, 10% Counoise, 4% Pinot Noir, 3% Syrah, 3% Cabernet Sauvignon and 1% Mourvèdre from select vineyards throughout Sonoma County. On the nose, notes of cassis and cherry work together to highlight hints of vanilla and bay leaf, while the palate offers a soft, round texture and flavors of brown spices, sweet tobacco, hints of leather and pronounced red berry fruits. The balanced tannins linger on the long, elegant finish.
