Hop Kiln Red Blend Russian River Valley Big Red 2009

Winemaker's Notes:

Hop Kiln has a 36 year tradition of the great Big Red vintages. The Grenache and Pinot Noir provide bright cherry, raspberry, and blackberry notes. While the Syrah and Malbec create a deep, chewy mouth feel with the slightest touch of oak on the finish.

From planting, growing and harvesting to crushing, processing, bottling and labeling, our award-winning HKG Estate wines are a result of the meticulous care given to the fruit by vineyard manager David Smith merged with a progressive vision for what ends up in the bottle from rising star winemaker Chuck Mansfield. HKG Estate Wines come exclusively from fruit grown on our 250-acre estate located amongst the Russian River Valley’s finest producers. We are geographically blessed with a variety of soil types and microclimates that allow for vast differentiation and an array of flavor profiles even within blocks of the same varietals. Our first release was the 2006 bottling of HKG Estate Pinot Noir, and we’re proud to have garnered consistent acclaim and high marks in successive vintages from reviewers including the Wine Spectator and the PinotReport. Today we make 5 different varietals: Pinot Noir, Chardonnay, Pinot Grigio, Rosé of Pinot Noir and our newest creation Sparkling Rosé of Pinot Noir, Read less
