The Dreaming Tree Crush North Coast 2016

External Review by We Speak Wine:

2016 Vintage: Another mild winter brought an early bud break in February. Average rainfall created perfect conditions for soil, vine health, and a good fruit set, which brought in average-sized crops throughout most of the vineyards. A cooler summer without much high heat until September allowed the fruit to ripen evenly. Once the heat hit, the fruit was harvested and quickly brought into the winery, resulting in great quality red and white wines. These longer growing seasons with lower temperatures are ideal for developing and preserving the fruit flavors in the different varietals. Winemaking: Vineyards are chosen from a range of different areas throughout California that have the right growing conditions for each of the individual varieties. The resulting wines are made to be fruity and full in the palate, but also have a nice, smooth tannin structure. The individual varieties each bring something different and unique to the Crush Red Blend. Tasting Notes: This wine brings juicy red fruit with nice mid-palate weight from the Merlot, raspberry jam flavors from the Zinfandel, and dark fruit and structure from the Petit Sirah and Tannat. Its blend of coastal California varieties results in a tasty, complex wine with lots of fruit flavors, some vanilla and mocha, and a long, soft finish. This Crush Red Blend is a favorite for enjoying with friends or pairing with a nice meal. Food Pairing: A wonderful wine, enhanced by such foods as pulled pork, Vietnamese-style pork sandwiches, or vegetarian stuffed poblano peppers. Varietal: 54% Merlot 18% Petit Sirah 18% Zinfandel 4% Tannat 6% Other Varieties Aging: 17 months in oak barrels Total Acidity: 6.2g/L pH: 3.63 RS: 9.0g/L Alcohol: 13.8%
