SKU: 2019 Red Pump

Our popular Red Pump 2019 is the perfect representation of the grapes in this blend: Cab Franc, Chambourcin, Merlot, Tannat, and a touch of Viognier. Not just a mishmash, but a measured blending, so the best characteristics of each grape shines through. The sweet nose brings to mind figs and ripe strawberries followed by deeper dried fruit flavors, with a slight oak finish and light acidity and tannins. Red Pump is best served at room temp or slightly chilled. Keep this one on deck for a backyard barbecue, or a relaxing gathering with friends.

Nose:  fig, stonefruit, ripe strawberries, black currant

Palate:  raisin, date, prune, raspberry, black tea

Finish:  light acidity, oak, and tannin
