Sky Island Red Wine 2011 Small Picture

Sky Island Red Wine 2012

Description

Like the blends of Bordeaux, Sky Island combines Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Malbec and Petit Verdot to build complexity. Its flavors run the gamut from tobacco and chocolate to earthy tannins and black fruit. Enjoy it at Whitecliff as you look at our own sky island – the unique ecosystem of our cliffs, the Shawangunk Ridge. Or enjoy it at home with a steak!

Vintner's Notes: 59% Cabernet Sauvignon, 17% Merlot, 13% Cabernet Franc, 6% Malbec, 5% Petit Verdot fruit sourced from Long Island; 22 brix at harvest. Malolactic fermentation, aged 12 months in American and Hungarian oak. 0% Residual sugar.
