Smashberry Red 2012


SKU 23120


Smashberry is all about the fruit: bright raspberry on the nose and boysenberry and cocoa flavors on the palate. It is rich on the palate with a supple mouthfeel, yet has firm tannins and a clean finish. Not a wine for the faint of heart or spirit. Destemmed, crushed and sent directly into fermentation tanks. Pumped over with several delestages during 7 to 10 days fermentations on skins. The wine was pressed, racked, underwent malolactic fermentation, and was then aged 9 months on American Oak.

Wine EnthusiastSmashberry is the perfect name for this wine. Made from an unstated blend of grape varieties, it tastes like mashed, ripe blackberries, blueberries and cherries. The alcohol level is moderate, but gives the wine a pleasant warmth.
