For our 2012 Carne Humana Proprietary Red Wine we blended 100% Napa Valley fruit, the preponderance of which was grown within the borders of the original rancho. All of the fruit was co-fermented and barrel-aged as unique blends. This allowed the various grape types to integrate with each other early on, and also for the different vineyards to achieve greater harmony in the final blend. After an extended maceration of almost 60 days, we aged the wine in a combination of new and seasoned French oak barrels for about 18 months. Hint of sweet tobacco, maple, cherry pie filling, black licorice and an enlivened, bright acidity on the entry that is quickly followed by rich, dark fruits, dried cranberry and sweet oak. Lingering finish.
