2010 Envolve Puma Springs Bordeaux Blend
Our 2010 Bordeaux Blend comes from the Demeter Certified Biodynamic Puma Springs vineyard. Located midway between the Alexander and Dry Creek Valleys, this spot is ideally suited for growing Bordeaux grapes. This vineyard is located on a sloping hillside enabling it to take advantage of the local microclimate. This was the first growth for our Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc. The yields were very low and the fruit had very concentrated and complex flavors.
This wine is comprised of 70% Cabernet Sauvignon and 30% Cabernet Franc. Co-fermentation in 100% stainless steel tanks ensured a clean, round wine. We extended maceration to 7 days to ensure the proper extraction from our young grapes. Using native yeasts, a slow 14-day fermentation helped the development of favors and the result was a complete red wine.
This Biodynamically farmed Bordeaux Blend is rich in dark fruit flavors. Notes of blackberry, black cherries and currant with hints of chocolate and tobacco grace the palate. This red has a big mouth-feel with well-integrated tannins and a long, clean finish. Pair this wine with grilled steak, duck, lamb, and wild game.
