2018 Souzao
Routon Vineyard, Fair Play

Tasting Notes

This wine is deep and dark, nearly opaque in the glass. It has a smoky and almost meaty aromatic profile with a background of currants and French oak spice that opens up with a few minutes in glass. Bright acidity beautifully balances with the chewy, full tannins of this wine, and contributes to a long finish and full structure across the palate.

Winemaking Notes

We chose not to bleed any juice off of these grapes for rosé, as we often do, as Taylor wanted to treat the grapes as they were harvested to express the true terroir of the vineyard and the varietal characteristic of the Souzão grapes. As well, there was already sufficient tannin and pigment to create a full-bodied wine without any additional concentration needed. The wine fermented for 14 days during which we did punch downs three times per day for optimal extraction.

Food Pairing

Flavorful cheeses and cured meats. Grilled sausages. Beef fajitas or enchiladas would be a delightful pairing.

Aging

Aged in mix of oak, primarily French oak with a touch of American oak for 20 months.
