Skipstone Ranch Preface Red Blend 2016


Only 1 left!

Alcohol: 14.5%

Grape(s): Merlot 92%, Cabernet Sauvignon 4%, Cabernet Franc 4%

Localization: Sonoma, California, USA

Tasting Notes: The wine is very typical of Melka with ripe (but never overripe) blackberry, cherry, currant, cassis and blueberry with a supporting cast of clove, vanilla and rose water. There is a blanket of smooth tannin that persists throughout, propping up the fruit concentration nicely. There is considerable lift in the finish to keep the wine fresh aromatically intense.

Notes: Certified Organic

The Domain: Skipstone is tucked between two stunning hillsides in the mountains above Alexander Valley. We aspire to perfection in every aspect of our wine growing and estate farming, drawing inspiration from the unparalleled potential and promise of the earth. Uncompromising in our standards of sustainability and treatment of the land, we are committed to nurturing the precious resource that is our 200 acre estate. Blessed by nature, we listen intently to the terroir of our vineyards, and in turn, our wines speak eloquently of their origin.

An exquisite site of unmatched beauty, the Skipstone vineyard sits like an amphitheater carved into a horseshoe-shaped mountain hidden high above Alexander Valley. Sometimes, very rarely, you come across the total package — beauty, substance and soul.
