The Federalist Honest Red Blend North Coast 2014

External Review by WineExpress.com:

The Federalist Honest Red Blend pays homage to one of the most highly regarded American Presidents of all time, Abraham Lincoln. Lincoln's accomplishments are numerous, though he is probably best known for emancipating the slaves, preserving the union following the Civil War and sadly being assassinated while in office. His legacy, while not tied directly to the Federalist, is worthy of our respect, honestly. A blend of Merlot (55%), Zinfandel (30%) and Cabernet Sauvignon (15%), sourced from North Coast vineyards 68% Mendocino County, 27% Napa County & 5% Sonoma County. Different blocks were fermented separately to preserve ideal characteristics of each. Each block spends an average of 18 days on the skins. This wine has aromas and flavors of plum, blackberry and black currant with a hint of spice. The dark fruits and spice flavors offers a rich, round mouthfeel with a long finish. Celebrate Presidents day with this all American wine that's a tribute to one of our greatest!
