Bonterra Equinox Red Blend California 2016

Winemaker's Notes:

Twice a year, the sun crosses the celestial equator, resulting in a day and night of equal length. These occurrences are referred to as “equinoxes,” and the twin lengths of day and night when they occur are among the many ways nature demonstrates balance. At Bonterra, we strive for a similar natural balance in our organic vineyards and in our wines. Equinox Red celebrates this vision, offering supple notes of juicy red and black fruit matched with a patina of intriguing spice, herb and oak tones.

Intriguing nose of mellow earth, mushroom and black pepper with light red fruit notes of cherry and red currant. Light on the palate, soft fruit notes of cherry and tart plum skin, fresh florals and berry compote towards the finish. There’s a resinous core to this adding some depth, complexity and a touch of tar. 89 pts
