GILLMORE  Mariposa Red Blend

Tasting Notes

A blend of 50% Syrah and 50% Merlot, the fruit is dry-farmed from low-yield, 50 year-old organically farmed estate vines. The deepest red hues in the glass hint at abundant aromas of red raspberries and strawberries followed by an elegant dry acidity in the mouth. The wine is fresh, concentrated and well-balanced.

"Aromas of dark fruits, dried mushroom and dusty soil follow through to a full body, firm and tight mouthfeel, fine and chewy tannins and a flavorful finish. Syrah and merlot. Drink or hold."
