Big Basin Vineyards

Homestead Red Blend

52% GRENACHE, 23% CARIGNANE, 20% SYRAH, 5% MOURVEDRE

About this wine

The unique blend of our 2017 Homestead offers a wine that is both compelling and ponderable. All of our small lot fermentations see the same love and attention. It is our overriding goal to produce wines that are true to the great vineyard sites we work with. The dominant percentage of Grenache expresses itself on the nose with bright bing cherries, while the other varietals come through as notes of earthy black fruit and hints of roasted herbs. On the palate the wine is lively and palate coating with nice fine grained, chewy tannins. The moderate alcohol level and good acidity make this a great food wine and one that is likely to age exceptionally well.
