A dense, complex Red Blend from the Brakesman family’s estate vineyard on Howell Mountain in Napa Valley, the Red Thread 2016 Red Wine Blend is comprised of 57% Zinfandel, 28% Cabernet Sauvignon, and 15% Petite Sirah. Black ruby in color, this wine offers inviting aromas of herbs de Provence, mocha latte, leather, baking chocolate, vanilla and boysenberry. The palate is fruity and full-bodied with warming, intricate flavors of raspberry crumble, flourless chocolate cake, smoked almonds, and honey drizzled golden raisins that carry through to the long and lingering finish. Well-integrated tannins and moderate oak offer structure and support to the complexity and range of flavors.
