2017 Blackboard Red Wine

This red wine is a combination of many common Bor- deaux varietals, and includes some Syrah for com- plexity. The Blackboard celebrates the use of chalk in our winery, which is used for marking everything from wine barrels, winery walls to fermentation tanks. The Blackboard label is reminiscent of school black- boards and chalk writing. A portion of Blackboard proceeds will be used to support local, national, and international charities.

Tasting Notes

Beautiful notes of strawberry, pureed raspberry, currants, plum jam and spice. Hints of vanilla bean, macerated berries and cocoa powder carry the palate.
